Happy July Fourth!

Today is a day to celebrate for many reasons.  Naturally, the fact the Colonies decided to declare independence from us Brits and go on to win the Revolutionary War is one reason...and I do celebrate :)

Another reason is that Sammy is up and running, joining in the fun and play, doing all the things kids without cancer do on this special holiday.

I am thankful, and send much love to those who are still fighting.  May everyone have reason to celebrate on this sunny July 4th!  xxx

The Health Bill

In 2014 Sammy will be 10.  He won't be thinking about health insurance, and hopefully, we won't be worrying about his future health!  I am not going to get political, but one good thing that has come from the last four years has been the fact that my son, who through no fault of his own got cancer,  will now be able to get insurance despite having such a pesky ol' pre-existing condition.

Had this bill not been passed, Sammy, like millions of other children with pre-existing conditions, including his brother who has asthma, would have paid through the nose, or been completely denied health coverage!  Imagine telling a survivor to cover their own ass because they had cancer as a child!!!!

I am ecstatic about this.  I could argue against other decisions made by the administration...but I could with any administration, that's life.  As I said, I'm not getting political, I just want to celebrate this milestone and acknowledge all the beautiful children it will help in the future.
