JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — In November, 8 years after the attack, First Coast News interviewed a survivor of the Fort Hood mass shooting. Army Veteran Patrick Ziegler lost part of his brain on November 5th, 2009 when he was shot point blank multiple times at the military post.
In November, Zeigler tried out a Hyperbaric Chamber for the first time to treat a number of issues, like PTSD and Traumatic Brain Injury. After completing the 40 treatments he says he feels the difference mentally and physically.
Neither the V.A. nor insurance would cover the cost of the Hyperbaric Chamber. That’s where the nonprofit ‘The 22 Project’ stepped in to help, footing the bill and taking high definition before and after scans to compare progress.
