A true Champion

After serving 27 years in the Army including tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, surviving 7 IED's blasts, Lt Col Kathy Champion came home only to find she had contracted a virus in Iraq that took her eyesight. Instead of feeling sorry for herself, Kathy acquired a guide dog, Angel, from the Paws for Patriots Program of Southeastern Guide Dog School in Florida, and has made it her quest to raise 2 million dollars to help other soldiers either blinded or suffer from PTSD to acquire service dogs. With Angel by her side, Kathy is an unstoppable force. She is a true "sheroe" to all who have served under her and to all who know her.
