Even if you can't find it in yourself to support the troops in Afghanistan, maybe you could get off your doughy, civilian ass and write a letter to your Member of Parliament... to support this one soldier.
A year-and-a-half ago, Capt. Kim Fawcett was walking her nine-and-a-half month old son Keiran to his grandmother's house when they were hit by a car.She lost a young child, she lost a leg... but she never lost heart...
Fawcett was about to be deployed to Afghanistan for the second time. Fawcett lost her leg and her son was killed in the accident.
Despite her personal tragedy, Fawcett never lost her spirit or her drive.
In May, she competed in the Limestone Charity Triathlon.I support Captain Kim Fawcett.
"I was competitive in swimming and the cycling", said Fawcett. "But I had to walk the running portion of the event because they took away my running leg.''
Fawcett was denied funding for a running leg under the Blue Cross Administered Spectrum of Care policy.
She had to return the running leg to her doctor.
Injured soldiers are allowed two legs under the policy. Fawcett requested her second leg be her running leg, but athletics prosthetics are not covered under the plan.
"It is frustrating because I am entitled to two legs and my walking leg cost $40,000 while my running leg cost $18,000."
And so should you all.
