A 20 year-old soldier should never have to give up on her dream to live a normal healthy life because of the financial distress of a breast cancer diagnosis. 

C., a 20 year-old soldier, was weeks away from completing her army service when she felt a lump in her breast. Instead of planning a post-army trek or applying to university, C. was preparing for aggressive chemotherapy.  During her service, she had special leave to work to help support her poverty-stricken family. Now unable to do this, C. was in a serious financial crisis. A Lemonade Fund grant is helping to cover expensive transport costs to her treatments, and clothing and accessories for this vibrant young woman, who contributes so much to her country. So she can dream, and plan a return to the normal life of a healthy young adult.
