My name is Janice Henderson and I am a proud honorably discharged veteran of Riverside California March Airforce BASE.1. It is a gift to be a natural giver. The gratitude and peace within me I hold dear to my heart. Knowing I was able to help people learn that they can create positive change in their lives is a blessing. Helping them identify their self-worth and learning theirs is valuable remains as a rewarding memory of my life’s journey.
I graduated High School in 1974 and shortly after I worked with the Middletown Board of Education. Then later joined the US Air Force in 1975 and contributed in many meaningful ways as a Dietitian Therapist Specialist I served until 1977. I put my best efforts forth and continued to foster my education and attended the Indiana University of Bloomington Indian where I majored in special education. I returned to Ohio and wanted to give back to my community and took the position as a Youth Leader at the Group Homes For Hamilton County Department of Human Services of Cincinnati Ohio. Which expanded my career as a family service advocate for the Head Start program. I relocated to Colorado and worked as a teacher’s assistant at Bemis Daycare Center. I was happy to give of my time working to foster many people throughout my career at the El Paso County Department of Human Services of Colorado Springs Child Welfare Family to Family Administrative Technician for 21 years and retired in 2018.

I was discharged from the rehab floor on September 2nd 2021. They really help me to get back to some type of normalcy like walking and talking and writing and my speech. I was able to return back home to Colorado Springs as of September the 25th 2021. I am progressing quite well but slowly and taking baby steps towards my recovery. I am still requesting that donations be made in honor of me post-op my heart transplant status. I am currently enrolled in cardiac rehab and in Colorado Springs.
