Elizabeth Dole Foundation Announces Nancy White of West End as 2017 Fellow

Local West End Resident and Military and Veteran Caregiver Nancy White will Advocate for the 5.5 million Hidden Heroes caring for Wounded, Ill and Injured Veterans

 

Washington, D.C. — The Elizabeth Dole Foundation today announced its 2017 class of Dole Caregiver Fellows – 31 military and veteran caregivers who have been carefully selected from across the country to represent the Foundation including Nancy White of West End, North Carolina. As a military/veteran caregiver, Carolyn will represent the state of North Carolina from 2017-2019.

Leaders in their communities, these men and women will share their personal stories to bring vital attention to the tremendous challenges caregivers face and advocate for America’s military and veteran caregivers through the Foundation’s newly launched Hidden Heroes initiative. They will use their voices and perspective to advise the Foundation, its coalition partners and government leaders on the foremost issues concerning military caregivers. Additionally, the Dole Caregiver Fellows will empower other caregivers at HiddenHeroes.org, a premier online destination where military caregivers can access vetted resources, seek support and connect to a larger community.   

 “We are excited to have Nancy as part of the 2017 class of Dole Caregiver Fellows. Each Fellow is an essential part of the Foundation’s work,” said Senator Elizabeth Dole. “They are ambassadors, advocates, advisors, and spokespersons not only for the Foundation but for military and veteran caregivers across the nation. In addition to providing vital help to those who serve our country, the Fellows support the work of the Foundation and our partners by lending their firsthand knowledge, skills, expertise, and personal experiences to our shared mission.” 

In 1986, Nancy White’s daughter Sloane was sexually assaulted by a group of women during Navy Boot Camp. As a result, Sloane suffered a psychotic breakdown and was diagnosed as paranoid schizophrenic, leaving her unable to function on her own. Five years after Sloane’s diagnosis, Nancy’s husband Arthur, a Navy Veteran, began exhibiting signs of Post-Traumatic Stress (PTS) and deteriorating mental health, requiring more and more of Nancy’s assistance. Thanks to the help of many caregivers in Nancy’s community, Sloane has become more functional since suffering her psychotic break.

Before becoming a full-time caregiver, Nancy managed three major East Coast airports. She has since retired and subsequently begun caring for mentally and physically challenged people, and building group homes where they can receive the proper care. In her role as a Dole Caregiver Fellow, Nancy hopes to educate her community and the nation about the mental health issues facing caregivers and their wounded warriors.

Senator Dole created the Foundation’s cornerstone Dole Caregivers Fellows Program to directly engage military and veteran caregivers. The new Fellows’ class represents 25 states and the District of Columbia, adding to a remarkable group of 110 military caregivers who have already served as Fellows and who represent all 50 states and Puerto Rico. From homemakers, professors and former high school teachers to police officers, writers, business owners, and nurses, the Fellows’ stories are diverse, but together they capture the strength and resiliency inherent to the 5.5 million military and veteran caregivers across America.
