I've written before, but now I reaching out for help. I've been asked to address a Congretional like panel that will be put together in Billings, MT, to address Veterans Issues in our State, and mainly those of the families, and of Agent Orange and Squamous Cell Carcinoma and Cancer in general.
My feeling is that Cancer is Cancer and should be approved for all of you across the board. I've been told all my life that I am very Tenatious...and this Pit Bull has just begun. A couple of you, and one in particular know my story, and my husband is an Army, Viet-Nam era Vet, who spen 13+ months in Pleiku. He now has Squamous Cell Carcinoma. He's had to have his entire left lower jaw removed. YES, he chewed. The doctors at the VA say that both Copenhagen and the Agent Orange are possible contributors to this, but no one will put either down on paper, and his VA Claim has been denied. Last year he had corrective surgery on his surgical site, and now they realize he's rejecting his bone graft due to the radiation treatments, so he's going back in for another major surgery in May.
I'd like to hear from all of you in Montana who are interested in giving me your names and facts to take with me to this panel/hearing when it happens. I am going to speak for the whole, not just my husband!!!!!
I told Les that if his cancer was in his pants, no problem, he'd be a 100 percenter...but no...he had to get it in his mouth. He's never learned to keep his mouth shut. LOLOLOLOL
No, it's not a laughing matter, but if I don't laugh I'll cry for you all, and I don't feel like crying today.
