  •  Your story - hard to read (0+ / 0-)

    but should be told again & again. I appreciate your courage and honesty in sharing the facts of your unspeakable loss. My heart goes out to you. My mother passed away from pancreatic cancer at age 42. 34 years later is is still painful for me to talk about. I believe there were environmental factors (toxins, chemicals)that caused her killer cancer. You have highlighted so much that is brutal, inexcusable, and barbaric about the health care system we have.
    The Komen debacle touched a raw nerve in me as well. For an organization to use cancer and women to push a political agenda, is just evil.
