Timberly Eyssen, left, prepares for Dental Assistant Sam Mattix to take an X-ray of her teeth at Affordable Dentures in Vancouver on Friday morning, July 13, 2018. A skydiving accident in 2011 left Eyssen with a broken neck, which eventually lead to a severe opioid addiction. After years of drug abuse, Eyssen attempted suicide in in April of 2017, but has since begun a treatment with Suboxone, which helps to treat her pain and addiction.

The 501st marched as part of the annual parade, but Eyssen had to leave early due to pain in her foot and exhaustion.
