The National Association of American Veterans Cares For Those Who Have Served.

The return is not always easy when resources are scarce for postwar mental, physical, financial, and housing assistance. Health conditions and injuries incurred during military duty often require continuous and ongoing care and are more difficult to treat when home life is unstable, access to care is limited, and financial support is unavailable.

Support the programs provided by the NAAV by making a contribution on behalf of our veterans.

More Than A Dancer

** For National Dance Day, OGTV is sharing this story of a young girl with cerebral palsy who refuses to be separated from her favorite dance troupe no matter how high the obstacles. **

This little girl dreamed of one day dancing. Unfortunately, she suffers from cerebral palsy, making this dream more difficult to fulfill than others. In spite of it all, she is able to overcome the obstacles and defeat the odds. Meet Meg Worrick, the 13-year old dancer.

Meg first knew she wanted to become a dancer when she attended one of her little sister's dance recitals. She was filled with an overwhelming emotion of sadness, seeing her sister up on the stage, wishing she could be up there dancing too. With the unconditional support from her parents, dance studio, and dance instructor, this dream became a reality.

Healthy Recipes From Twin Sisters Who Care - Lasagna Soup

** OGTV celebrates National Lasagna Day with Joy and Judy, twin sisters from a large Italian family who love to take their favorite recipes and serve them up with a healthy spin. **

When most of us think of our favorite family recipes or holiday classics, we do not necessarily think of healthy food. Casseroles, biscuits, cheesy and buttery and fried bites tend to dominate discussions of "comfort food." Well, twin sisters Joy and Judy from our original series Twin Sisters, Love & Cooking! are trying to develop a different, healthier style of comfort food, and this scrumptious Lasagna Soup recipe is a perfect example!

Joy and Judy were inspired to re-work their Italian family's favorite recipes into healthier versions after Judy was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009. Fortunately, today, Judy is a survivor, and the twin sisters get to spend tons of quality time together—especially in the kitchen.
