Fairbanks Construction joined nearly a dozen home improvement companies for Baths for the Brave as soon as it heard about the initiative. Fairbanks chose Anthony Battaglia, who served in the U.S. Army during the Korean War. Battaglia struggled ever since he returned home from serving with limited mobility, which made bathing and showering difficult to do. Battaglia now won’t have to struggle nearly as much, thanks to Baths for the Brave. To learn more about Battaglia, see his story below.

Anthony Battaglia has struggled with limited mobility for many years. He served in the U.S. Army during the Korean War as an engineer, but was injured while serving and came home to face struggles in everyday life and tasks, like bathing and showering.
Battaglia had an in-home care provider assisting him with many of these everyday tasks to ease the burden on his wife, but recently that helped stopped.
“The woman who was coming to help him a couple days a week has stopped, now it’s me,” Battaglia’s wife said.
Fairbanks Construction knew the struggle the family was facing and showed up to surprise the Battaglias. You can see that reveal below.
Upon learning they had been chosen as the recipient of a new shower through the Baths for the Brave program, Battaglia couldn’t help but grin from ear to ear saying, “now I don’t have to reach 15 feet to get out of the shower; that’s fantastic!”
Battaglia is looking forward to his new, easy-access shower and the relief it will bring to him and his family.
