i am a veteran who served in korea and we need all the help for our veterans we can get. I am a breast cancer advocate because i would not allow my cancer to take me out! Being in the military gave me the drive and determination to never quit! There is no excuse not to be helping our soldiers who our fighting for Your freedom. 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.
