Getting there body parts blown off for you and we can spend money and bullshit programs but we cant take care of our men and women like me who on their free will chose to serve and protect to very lawmakers who are basically deciding not to help them why they sleep very comfortably in there million dollar homes while a good majority of our vets are homeless! Wake the hell up you better hope people in congress and in the senate it doesnt happen to one of your kids. I was a reseacher a one of the finest research hospitals in NE in I was diagnosed with Stage 3B Breast Cancer with 14 lymph Nodes also being positive with cancer. This is a very bad cancer. I had to quit my job and go on medicaid. Because the chemotherapy treatments are 45,000. Per treatment. I had 16 total and 36 radiation treatments. Plus reconstuction surgery . So far the bill is over 8 million dollars at least. My point is this people arent numbers they are human beings and they need to start being treated like people so start doing your part.

My late husband was a Vietnam Vet. He passed away five years ago from prostate cancer that the VA determined was caused by exposure to Agent Orange. Our first child was stillborn. Our surviving son has mental health issues. I always wonder if both were also caused by AO.

I am the daughter of a Vietnam vet. My dad was there and exposed to agent orange. I was born with a birth defect. I'm told it's called Poland's syndrome. I also have Graves thyroid disease, celiac disease, hypoglycemic, my joints ache daily. I'm 43. My younger brother also is dealing with issues and was born with a defect.

I hope this petition works for you, Tracey ! I recently found out that my grandson (11 years old) also has Poland's disease. Can you offer me any thoughts on the difficulties you have lived through so I may have some insight on this as Trevor grows?
