We are sad to report the tragic early death of Col. Kristine Henderson, M.D., a 2020 IBOT recipient. Dr. Henderson was trained at the Uniformed Services University medical school, later becoming an Air Force physician. Following 9/11, Dr. Henderson volunteered and trained as a Critical Care Air Transport Team physician and in 2003 deployed in Operation Enduring Freedom to Iraq.
When Dr. Henderson returned from Iraq, she became chief of the Critical Care Air Transport Team at Patrick AFB in FL. Unfortunately, she was then diagnosed with multiple sclerosis forcing her to retire from her career as an AF physician.
Below is a short video Dr. Henderson shared with us when she was enjoying her new iBOT.
Staff Sgt. Matthew Lammers, a twice purple heart recipient, an Army veteran who lost his three limbs while serving in Iraq.
Matt’s wife just said, “This morning he asked to walk with me and promised to keep me safe. Ibot is changing our lives!”

Back from serving in a war zone, he broke his neck in three places and suffered quadriplegic spinal injuries. Now, this veteran shows other vets that with determination there is a real worthwhile life after catastrophic injuries. He’s paying it forward and Independence Corps was proud to provide him his Track Chair.
