AMF is such a wonderful organization and idea, and I am so thankful that it has spread to so many different schools. The challenges and problems that we deal with as students with ailing loved ones are unique and impossibly difficult, but the support of groups such as AMF makes them bearable. Every school should have a chapter, and every student should know about it.
