A few months ago a dear friend of mine and fellow Comrade, CPT Amy Chandler was diagnosed with Breast Cancer at the young age of 38. She has served our Nation for the past 13 years, initially as Marine and now in the Army. Amy is wired to serve her community. She is now a government employee. However, due to the shutdown she is doing so without pay. Can you imagine battling a relentless illness like cancer while not knowing when your next paycheck will be forthcoming? In addition to a rent, utilities and other life expenses, she has accumulated close to $20,000 in bills that have not been covered by insurance. Amy is one of the strongest, most squared-away Soldiers I have ever met. She is a proud warrior and humble servant. I know she would never ask for help. So I am asking for her. I want her to know that she is not alone. Any help that you can give is greatly appreciated.
