ROCKFEST 2019 is a benefit event for Warrior Wellness Solutions a 501(c)3 non-profit
providing nutrition coaching, rehabilitative exercise and post-traumatic stress management
to our nation’s Wounded Ill and Injured Warriors (WII).
Cpl. Politowicz survived an IED explosion, his recovery was slow and painful
until he discovered Warrior Wellness Solutions.
Cpl. Michael Politowicz was on foot patrol in Afghanistan when an improvised explosive
device (IED) detonated three feet from him. Severely injured by shrapnel, diagnosed with
traumatic brain injury Michael was flown to the USMC Wounded Warrior Battalion East at
Camp Lejeune, N.C. He received multiple surgeries, suffered from PTSD, nightmares and was 50 pounds overweight. In addition, Michael was taking 15 medications daily to ease his symptoms.
“I was a shut-in. I couldn’t deal with large crowds and had a hard time socially,” he said. “I couldn’t walk my dog or even walk from my house to my car.”
Politowicz’s wife Suzi reached out to Warrior Wellness Solutions, within three months working with WWS’ team of specialized nutrition and functional exercise experts Politowicz reduced his medications to one and lost the extra weight. He continued to recover and later ran the Marine Corps Marathon, a half Ironman Triathlon and won bronze medals in shot put, discus, and cycling while competing in Warrior Games. His story and painting is featured in President George W. Bush’s book Portraits of Courage. Politowicz gives 100% credit for his physical and emotional transformation to Warrior Wellness Solutions. “I would not be here today if not for this amazing group of dedicated individuals.”
WWS has provided these services to thousands of warriors and their caregivers since 2008. Every donor has played an essential role in supporting our nation’s finest. With your support Warrior Wellness Solutions will continue to transform the lives of Wounded, Ill, and Injured Warriors and their Families.
