Candy

Wounded warrior U.S. Army Specialist Jay Briseno (Retired) (C) and his parents Joe (L) and Eva Briseno get settled into their new residence September 29, 2014 in Manassas, Virginia. Briseno became a quadripelgic after being shot in the head while serving in Iraq in 2003 and his parents have worked full-time to care for him since then. The Quality of Life Foundation, Azalea Charities and Helping A Hero worked together to raise $570,000 in labor, materials and contracting to build the home with an accessible bathroom with a roll in shower, lift system, a home therapy room and a screened-in porch and deck.
