Best Kept Secret

Micaela is a tireless fighter for our wounded returning troops. She is the Vice President of the R.A.W. Foundation founded by her mother. The goal, to bring together plastic surgeons to do the surgeries the government doesn't fund, like the man who needed a nose. Micaela's own health setback has her now blogging about being bedridden all the while she continues to lobby for our disfigured veterans. Micaela is a beautiful, spunky woman and mother who's life has taken this shocking turn, yet she continues to educate, motivate and inspire.  — Christine

I met Micaela as a tireless fighter for our disfigured veterans. She is Vice President of the R.A.W. Foundation, formerly Iraqstar. It brought together plastic surgeons to do the reconstructive surgeries the government doesn't cover, like the man who needed a nose. Micaela has since had a health setback and is bedridden, unable to move her limbs due to an old back injury. Still Micaela continues to advocate for our troops. At the same time she chronicles her traumatic health journey. This woman is a pretty mother and it is heartbreaking to see this turn of events. Yet still, Micaela continues to educate, inspire and inform us all. She is dynamic! Micaela, by trade is a photographer who did a calendar of disfigured vets showing them in all of their beauty.  — Christine
