Amanda Price Palmer and Carrie Price-Nix

Amanda Price Palmer, left, cares for her sister, Carrie Price-Nix, at Palmer's home in Brownsburg, Ind. Both women suffer aches and bouts of fatigue associated with Chiari malformation, a structural defect at the base of the brain. Palmer is fighting for compensation from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, arguing that her medical issues, like her sister's, can be traced to their father's exposure to herbicides while he served in the Vietnam War.
