Proudly Supporting all Military Families with a Special Needs Dependent
Today, we want to introduce you to Tiffany Nguyen, a Marine Corps spouse, stationed with her family in 29 Palms, California. Her best experience with military life has been “family bond” she has made with friends from different parts of the country and from all walks of life. “Military families aren’t afraid to go the distance for others, she says.” Tiffany has Type 1 Diabetes, which is an autoimmune disease in which a person’s pancreas stops producing insulin, a hormone that enables people to get energy from food. Each day for Tiffany is an obstacle to overcome. When her family PCS’d to their current duty station, she didn’t think she would like it at all. One thing she likes to do on the weekends, though, is to visit Joshua Tree National Park. Tiffany says, “Seeing the beauty that the desert has to offer gives our whole family a chance to de-stress.” Tiffany’s advice for military families who are new to the world of special needs is to get involved. She wants to remind other that the military does have a lot of great programs for families. But the biggest advice is: “Don’t ever feel like you’re alone. Ever.”
The Military Special Needs Network honors and salutes Tiffany Nguyen, our Military Spouse of the Day. We thank you for being such a wonderful military spouse and an amazing advocate.
