    Mine, which I thought was gone has returned, probably from microscopic pieces of the original tumor that exploded back to life after the chemo that almost killed me finally stopped after the 6 month treatment cycle.

    2 "new" neoplasms, one of which is exceptionally painful flared up just recently.

    Insurance coverage for catastrophic diseases costs a ton, pays out buy demands other insurance to fill some wildly expensive gaps.  Its horrible!

    Why must those struck with such a nightmare be left to the "tender mercies" of this insurance industry?  Why is bankruptcy often not only necessary but critically important for basic survival just because you are struck with a catrostrophic disease?

    We need a single payer system especially for older Americans not yet retired.  

    Whether it is an expansion of medi-care, or a new system...something MUST change and soon!  

    The nation we save from Republican sharpsters will be our own. We need a Democratic Congress, and to reelect President Obama....this won't be easy...we better get started NOW!
