  •  My sister is having a mastectomy on the (5+ / 0-)

    15th and I am scared shitless for her. Breast cancer does not run in our family but she even has the gene which promotes it. She had undergone a lumpectomy 4 months ago and was just finishing chemo getting ready to start radiation when the routine MRI showed two more tumors. Both the oncologist and surgeon told her they had never seen that happen to someone undergoing chemo. I am grateful she has excellent health insurance at least so there is no question on corners being cut in her cancer surgery and treatment.

    I was awarded disability for my COPD last June and promptly lost my health coverage because my disability income is too much to qualify for any medical assistance. I will be eligible for Medicare in August if( I live that long), I have something wrong with my throat and my voice is about gone. It's a struggle to speak, and I can't remember the last time I had a mammogram(my procrastination and avoidance issues border on criminal).

    Sorry, I didn't mean to write a book, I just wanted to send good thoughts your way and to let you know I am in total agreement about SGK's disgusting organization.
