Elise Chamberlain - September 2023
Amanda Sands was a regimental medical officer in the British Army until she was medically discharged last year following a cancer diagnosis. She is now training for the Invictus Games, which she says have given her a "sense of purpose".
"When I'm in a gym lifting weights, I'm not thinking about my illness," she said. "I want to showcase, mainly to myself, but also friends and family, that I can go out there and still be the Amanda from the past that loves to do sport and compete."
