Celebrate Another Birthday!

Celebrate Another Birthday!

About This Campaign

Hello, my name is Dr. Elliot Hirshorn. Thank you for watching this video. I want to tell you about our 1st Annual Celebrate Another Birthday Campaign that begins April 15th, the birthday of my practice and ends on May 20th, my personal birthday. This campaign isn’t about me though. The goal of this campaign is to raise funds for an organization called Stop Soldier Suicide, whose goal in a sense is to help our military men and women live to Celebrate Another Birthday of their own. This organization is devoted to helping the men and women of our military, both active duty and veterans to avoid the tragedy of suicide. One active duty service person and 22 or more Veterans end their lives every single day as a result of PTSD and other invisible illnesses they sustained while serving our great country. I am extremely passionate about this cause, because it is personal to me. My brother, Sgt. Zacharie G Hirshorn, became one of those 22 Veterans and lost his battle with PTSD on Friday, August 29, 2014. Just this past February 13, 2015 would have been my brother’s 31st birthday, but he did not get to Celebrate Another Birthday. It is the goal of this campaign to raise money so that the patriots of our armed forces have the resources and help they need to avoid this tragedy and to be able to Celebrate Another Birthday with their loved ones. Your contributions are tax deductible and greatly appreciated. Even better, is that for every dollar raised up to $1000, I will personally match it! That means if we hit our goal of $1000, I will proudly write a check for another $1000! No gift is too big or too small. If you cannot provide financial support, please pray for our military members and the families of those left behind. Thank you for joining me in this worthy cause to help our brave men and women be able to Celebrate Another Birthday. Thank you and God bless.

Stop Soldier Suicide

Campaign to Support Stop Soldier Suicide

Help us end Veteran suicide.


Stop Soldier Suicide is the first national Veteran-founded and led non-profit relentlessly dedicated to the epidemic of - and cure for - suicide among Service Members. 

We understand the problems and issues of Military suicide are too complex for a single answer. Our skilled Case Managers find the right solution for each person. 

And it's not a single conversation. We follow up over a two year period help as long as is needed. 

Our evidenced-based approach makes us truly unique. 

And our mission is simple:

We offer empowerment to those who have served and are serving still.

    What a great campaign!!! I greatly support Stop Soldier Suicide and CelebrateAnotherBirthday! Thank you Elliot for putting this together so that we can provide funds needed to reach out to those veterans/active duty men and women who may struggle with PTSD and related illness as a result of serving our great country. Myself (and my mother Donna and sister Tara) stand firmly behind you, this campaign, and stopping the horrific numbers associated with solider suicide. Twenty-two a day, is just one too many!!!
