A Caregiver That Keeps On Giving


Roy Bridges has the type of life story you need to read to believe. Starting on a farm in rural northeast Georgia, it includes attending the U.S. Air Force Academy; surviving 226 Vietnam combat missions; serving as a staff officer in The Pentagon; building a family with his wife, Benita; and going all the way to space and back, as Roy was one of the select few pilots of the Space Shuttle Challenger for NASA in the 1980s.

But even astronauts must come back to Earth, and in Roy’s case, that return included his daughter Tanya’s lymphoma diagnosis in 2002.
