With her feet wrapped in bandages, Kate MacEachern walked into the Oliver Legion yesterday to a standing ovation, which inspired her to continue her grueling walk for PTSD.

The woman, who worked as a military tank driver/gunner, suffers from post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and has been walking across Canada to raise awareness and funds for others who struggle with it.

It was an emotional reception for MacEachern, who was met by many local veterans such as Jim Stewart, who also suffers from PTSD.
