Benefit for Wounded Warrior and dancer Jeannette Tarqueno

On December 4, 2011, while serving our country in the Persian Gulf, US Navy Gunners Mate First Class Petty Officer Jeannette Tarqueno was injured. 30 lbs of metal struck her on the left side of the head. She suffers from TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury).

Her everyday life has been affected…with difficulties in speaking, walking and balance. After spending time (until January 11, 2012) in San Diego for medical care, she was sent back to her home port of Pearl Harbor. Her treatment continues with a hopeful prognosis. It is believed that she will make a full recovery with the help of her family. The medical professionals have asked that the family stay with her while her treatment continues. They believe that this is a part of the recovery process. Wounded Warriors are helping in the financial need for the family. Unfortunately, due to the economic times, funding is limited. They are unable to help the family completely.

The goal of this fundraiser is to make sure that US Navy Gunners Mate First Class Petty Officer Jeannette Tarqueno, gets the help needed for her recovery, by allowing the family to be with her. Jeannette’s goal is to continue serving our country, as she has for the last 10 years. She has never asked for anything, she has only given to all of us. Please join us to help raise funds to make her recovery a success!

Any extra funds that are raised will be donated to the “Wounded Warriors” to help other families care for their loved ones that were injured while serving our country.
