Gifts That Matter

Andrew Skinner August 27, 2018 News, Noteworthy, SCI, Triumph Outreach Update

Sharing your gifts with others is one of the greatest joys in life. So here’s 3 quick gifts I want to share with you.

First, read about a gift we gave to a wounded warrior that will help him develop a revolutionary new product to improve the quality of life for many catheters users.

Then, see how hundreds of you rallied together to make life-changing gifts at our Let’Em Roll Fundraiser.  It was a night to remember!

Last, I want to celebrate your gifts! Your gifts matter so I want you to have a chance to be a hero and share them as part of the Triumph Family.

Let’s get started!

Gift for a hero

Triumph is proud to announce a recipient of our Employment Achievement Award - Derek Herrera!

Derek suffered a spinal cord injury while serving in Afghanistan as a Marine Officer. In 2012, he deployed to Afghanistan and was shot and paralyzed by enemy small arms fire during combat operations. Derek is now a paraplegic.

He continued serving his country as a Marine until 2014, then earned his Masters degree at UCLA with a certificate in Entrepreneurship.

Derek is now the Founder and CTO of Spinal Singularity. Spinal Singularity has been developing the Connected Catheter, the first fully internal, smart catheter system for adult males with Urinary Retention. This medical device company will greatly improve the lives of patients with Spinal Injury.

The Employment Award Funds granted to Derek will help Spinal Singularity for their upcoming clinical trials.
