Thank goodness I have:
*the means to pay for health care costs and medication not covered by insurance
*qualified, competent doctors and care givers
*a support network of family and friends.
Many people don't have one or more of those things.
In light of that, I wanted to share a couple links with you this weekend.
You can visit Karen at Simply A Musing Blog and leave any questions you have about cancer in the comments section. She says:
Here's the deal. I have some oncologists in Texas that want you to be informed so badly, they are willing to donate some time to the cause.They are inviting you to a question and answer right here on my blog.
What a great opportunity to ask the experts! Questions will be accepted until 9pm central on Sunday evening.
I also received an email from a reader named Lindsey who is launching a website to raise funds for free mammograms for women who cannot afford them. By purchasing gift cards to a large number of stores you probably shop at already, you can help those less fortunate get the health care they need.

Thank you all very much for your concern, kind words and for sharing your own stories after I wrote my post yesterday.
We really are all in this together. I am blessed by each and every one of you.
