About

$4,062

Amy E Higgs BH42297 (Bo Katan) is a member of Squad Corellia of the 501st Legion. Amy is currently fighting a very aggressive form of cancer. This is her second bout with fighting cancer and she will soon lose the ability to wear her armored costume for the 501st Legion. Her selfless nature is a true example of the heart of the Legion. She has a dream to continue her involvement with Garrison/Squad activities that bring smiles to children and help with the charities of the 501st Legion, even though she herself is fighting the same disease that many of those we visit are fighting. The way we can help her achieve this dream is to build Amy a "Chopper" droid. A droid she can control and use out of costume while still sharing her passion for Star Wars and helping those in need. We have a saying in Squad Corellia of "Never Tell Us the Odds!" Amy Higgs is the best example of this slogan as she fights the odds every day. We would be honored if you would help Amy achieve her dream and this goal. 

Risks and challenges

The challenges included in this project would be learning and understanding the components and mechanisms involved in droid building. I have knowledge of the droid body but the propulsion and electronics would be a great challenge.
