Medal of Honor Recipient Dakota Meyer Launches GoFundMe for PTSD Treatment  | Military

Medal of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer has launched a crowdsourced fundraising campaign to help other veterans receive an obscure post-traumatic stress disorder treatment that he says changed his life.

The 31-year-old Marine veteran launched the GoFundMe.com effort on July 9 to promote stellate ganglion block (SGB), a treatment that involves injections of a local anesthetic into the stellate ganglion, a group of nerves in the neck.

SGB is not a cure for PTSD, Meyer said, but added that the procedure has helped him cope with his own PTSD demons.
