Appearing together on national media since the February 2007 publication of their book, the couple founded the Bob Woodruff Foundation to assist wounded service members and their families.  To date, they have raised more than $95 million to help veterans successfully reintegrate into their communities and receive care. Woodruff has been a contributing reporter for  “CBS This Morning” and “Good Morning America.”  Her best-selling book “Perfectly Imperfect – A Life in Progress,” was followed by her first novel “Those We Love Most.”  A freelance writer and print journalist, Woodruff has penned numerous articles, including features and essays about her family, parenting and caregiving.  She currently runs a media/speaker training business.
