Unbreakable Bonds chronicles ten touching stories of mothers who spent years aiding the recovery of their children, U.S. soldiers and Marines who suffered severe injuries during the War on Terror. The survival of these wounded warriors is a testament, not only to the extraordinary efforts of military medical personnel and their own inner fortitude, but also to their mothers. These women put their lives on hold from the moment they get that first call about their injured son or daughter. They are ever present. Their commitments, like the wounds their children suffer, are life-long.
Unbreakable Bonds showcases the selfless love and support of the mothers who, like their wounded warriors, have been changed forever, and who have, without hesitation, sacrificed greatly for their country. Through the exclusive network of caregivers, who are there not just for their sons and daughters, they find strength for themselves and each other as well.
