Over the past year, I have been battling thyroid cancer. I was medevac'd to Tripler Army Medical Center for surgery and radiation treatments in September of 2012. I ended up paying for a few of my relatives to fly to Hawaii to be with me during this trying ordeal. When I returned back to Okinawa from Hawaii, I found a check in the mail for $500 from the Air Commando's Association. The money helped me pay for my relatives travel and lodging. I just wanted to say thank you to all of you for your support. Since then, I have become a lifetime ACA member (Kadena Chapter #L4592). I'm still battling cancer, but I feel at peace knowing that the ACA continues to support active duty members and their families throughout life struggles. Thank you and God bless you for what you do!"
