More Freedom

In January of 2009 I made a blog post in which I highlighted two stories that, on first glance, just HAD to be internet hoaxes.  In fact both of those stories were true.  One of them was about a man by the name of Jeff Guidry and the bald eagle named Freedom that he had helped to nurse back to health.  In turn, Freedom gave Guidry the strength to battle the cancer that he had been stricken with.  Last night I happened upon a video of Jeff and Freedom on YouTube that re-tells Jeff and Freedom’s story.  In addition, Jeff has authored a book about his life with Freedom:   An Eagle Named Freedom: My True Story of a Remarkable Friendship is available on

  1. I’m curious as to whether Jeff Guidry and the amazing Bald Eagle named Freedom are still together in 2015, as your story is in 2009 and 2011?

  2. I have kept the picture that was in the Reader’s Digest of Jeff with Freedom with his head tucked into Jeff’s neck on my office notice board. It and their story is an inspiration to me. Like Susan, I too wonder if Freedom and Geoff are still together.

  3. According to the sanctuary website, Freedom is still there (July 2016), but Jeff is not and another handler is working with Freedom.

  4. OH That is so sad to know that Jeff isn’t with Freedom anymore. But I bet he visits her I hope.

  5. Maybe Jeff is getting tired and needs to rest more.
