I lost my leg after three vows with cancer. On top of this i am a civilian and got no settlement from an accident either. Most of my expenses for sport activities and competition are out of pocket for me. I have racked up a pretty hefty bill.I had to give up several sports where i could be very good because lack of funding. I only had very few and select sponsors willing to help. AKP was able to make the difference by providing me the necessary equipment to train and compete and help me make the dream come true. This is truly a great organization that helps cancer survivors. Surviving cancer three times is tough enough....AKP foundation helps smooth the road later to enjoy life.
