Amie was so many different things to all of us that it is hard to put it all into words. She was a daughter, granddaughter, sister, mother, aunt, and friend. She was greatly loved, and admired by so many. She was an amazing mother to Caidyn (14), Jace (5), and EmmyLu (3) and loving wife to loving and devoted husband Brian. Her children were without a doubt, the light of her life. She was a vibrant, intelligent, stubborn, strong, and had a huge heart! She was also the most kind and loving person you could ever meet, and had this way of connecting with people that made you feel like you were the only person in the room. One of the most impressive things about Amie was her strength, she had worked very hard for everything she had in life. She had experienced so many things over the years that were difficult, and took them head on without hesitation, and came out on the other side even stronger! Whether it be single motherhood, a military career, multiple deployments to Iraq, or juggling two toddlers at once - she nailed it (and made it look easy). Her fighting spirit, fierce love and passion for helping others will live on through The Amie Muller Foundation.
As you can imagine, fighting any cancer takes a physical and emotional toll, but can also take a financial one was well.
Caregivers and spouses often take a leave of absence from work to care for their loved one fighting cancer.
While none of us can fight the battle for anyone, we can support a family with financial assistance to help pay the medical bills, childcare, and extensive travel needed for chemotherapy treatments, etc.
Amie has spend her life dedicated to serving our country and taking care of of so many others, and will continue to do so through The Amie Muller Foundation.
Our goal to start off with is to help 5 military families each year who have a loved one diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer(Pancer). We will eventually have a website site up with resources, education and advice to help fight this horrible disease. The maximum assistance we will give a family will be $5000 and will be based upon financial need.
Eventually, I would like to raise money for the most important and vital research that needs to be done to find a way to detect Pancreatic Cancer early. This is the most important task to increase survival odds in the future.
Amie was light. She was love. She was Amie Strong. Her light, love and strength will be there to help a military family in need. Her legacy will live on.
