Lee Woodruff is a best-selling author, journalist, mother, and wife. In 2006, a roadside bomb critically injured her husband, ABC News anchor Bob Woodruff, while he was reporting in Iraq.
Inspired by Bob’s miraculous recovery under the care of military doctors, Lee and her family created the Bob Woodruff Foundation to ensure today’s injured heroes and their families have the resources they need to thrive.
Over the past decade, the Bob Woodruff Foundation has invested $33 million to find, fund and shape more than 300 programs benefiting the lives of more than 2.5 million injured service members, veterans and their families.
Woodruff is a trustee and alumnus of Colgate University and an avid lover of New York’s Adirondack region. She lives in Westchester County, New York, with her husband and four children.
