Many served in the Vietnam War - they returned to not see the benefits they were promised, to be shunned, to be tossed aside and forgotten. Many are suffering today. Many need your help. Many have new health problems they never dreamed about... that their tour of duty, although they returned alive, would still end up killing them.
Yup, I'm talking about exposure to Agent Orange.
My father is one of them. Sure, he has hearing loss and some PTSD, but Parkinson's disease... wow. He was diagnosed in his early 60's. It progressed quickly. It took YEARS to get the help and benefits he needed from the VA... That said, the benefits will NEVER EVER make up for the pain and suffering and loss... that his own country poisoned him and sentenced him to a horrible death.
There are many more like him. Many with Parkinson's. Many with Cancer. Many with other neurological diseases that will take their lives from them.
My friend's husband is also suffering and he wanted something to to help raise awareness. Nothing existed. She took it upon herself to make decals for her husband and she shared the design with some family and friends... I was beyond thrilled. Please support Lynn, as she made these available for everyone. Please support the Vets who are suffering.
