LAS VEGAS (KTNV) - When military veteran Cristina Alfonso-Zea enlisted in the military, she wanted to follow in her mother's footsteps.
"She's been in the military for 26 years so it's been something in my family," Alfonso-Zea said.
But Alfonso-Zea wasn't able to serve for as long as her mother did. She was injured and given a medical discharge.
"It really took a toll on me," she said.
Alfonso-Zea has found healing through Forgotten Not Gone, a local organization that focuses on preventing veteran suicide by promoting physical activity.
"The isolation is really what kills people. Being alone, not being able to get out of the house," said Forgotten Not Gone co-founder Kelley Guidry.
For disabled veterans, like Alfonso-Zea, physical activity isn't easy. However, Forgotten Not Gone provides veterans with customized bicycles and tricycles that accommodate for their disabilities.
"It's really beneficial to be able to ride again," Alfonso-Zea said.
Forgotten Not Gone is in need of donations to maintain the bikes. More information can be found at forgottennotgone.org.
