The Mission 20 Campaign will help fund 20 of Operation Freedom Paws’ life changing service dog teams in 20 days.
Stella, the MSO connecting PTSD patients with cutting edge treatment, announced today its partnership with Operation Freedom Paws, the organization helping veterans to restore their independence by teaching them to train their own service dogs. The partnership kicks off during Operation Freedom Paws’ Mission 20 Campaign, a fundraising initiative to help fund 20 life changing service dog teams in 20 days.
“We couldn’t be more excited to partner with Operation Freedom Paws and their mission to support veterans and individuals with disabilities,” said Jim Williams, CEO of Stella. “At Stella, we are committed to ending America’s PTSD crisis, and the ongoing alignment with Operation Freedom Paws is another step towards that mission.”
In addition to supporting Operation Freedom Paws’ Mission 20 Campaign, Stella is kicking off a continuous relationship with the organization to provide exposure for the incredible work they are doing with veterans.

Stella aims to provide relief to the millions of people affected by trauma-related symptoms. Through a modification of a procedure called the Stellate Ganglion Block (SGB), Stella’s treatment targets the brain’s fight or flight response. Dr. Eugene Lipov, Stella’s Chief Medical Officer, is a world-renowned board-certified anesthesiologist and widely accepted as the pioneer of SGB for the treatment of trauma-related symptoms, having performed the procedure on thousands of patients worldwide over the past fifteen years.
