Those We’ve


The RT Weatherman evacuation team is permanently stationed in Ukraine and, upon notification, immediately travels to second-line hospitals to directly interface with patients, doctors, hospital administrators to ensure that the time from point of injury to definitive care is as minimal as possible.

    "After we received the news of Jericho’s passing, the Weatherman Foundation got in touch with us - me and my children - and have been the greatest support...the Weatherman Foundation is bringing my beautiful boy home on Sunday ( his birthday) and flying into LA on Monday. I cannot even begin to imagine all the hard work this took but they never gave up, just like they will never give up on [the other] boys. They also held a beautiful memorial for Jericho yesterday before he made his way home. Hold onto whatever faith you have"

  • Michael, former U.S. Green Beret‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎
    “The Ukrainians did the best they could, but I firmly believe that if it weren’t for the Weatherman Foundation, who evacuated me to Landstuhl, I would have been in a far off worse condition. At the American hospital, I was given first class medical care and able to keep as much of my hand as possible.
    The American doctors were also able to maintain my
    quality of life by installing titanium plates in my jaw bones rather than what the Ukrainian doctors proposed which was to keep my jaw wired shut for 6 to 12 months.
    So, I am immensely grateful to the Weatherman Foundation, not just to get me to Germany, but to give me the reassurance that I was in the best hands as possible. I can say it a million times and it won’t be enough.”
