As caregivers to cancer, we know that when it comes to health care costs, every dollar counts. We are proud to support HB 2166, which puts patients first and bans an unfair insurance practice. Watch this video on what HB 2166 will fix here in Arizona (https://www.nbc4i.com/news/local-news/patients-caught-in-the-middle-of-co-pay-battle/1846136889)
Spring, A time of Hope and Renewal!
March is my time to Celebrate the coming of Spring and my Birthday! I was so grateful to share my special day with my husband, ‘children’ and grandchildren in Pasadena, California. It is also a Celebration of 28 years since Jack was diagnosed with multiple myeloma. And, like so many of ‘you’, our life was changed forever.
Cancer is an awful disease to face, but thankfully there are so many more resources available now to patients and caregivers. We have more new treatments, new research and more opportunities to get the help we need. We can ask for a 2nd opinion, which we discussed in our February newsletter. Or, go online and ‘check out’ the services being offered at the different cancer treatment facilities.
Click on our newsletter link for ‘what’s new’ and how you can participate in our upcoming issues and my Book: “Living with Myeloma, a CareGivers Journey”. Also, take a moment to explore our website to learn about our sponsorship and donation opportunities.
Most of all, Jack and I wish you a Happy Spring! Get out and enjoy a Baseball Game- Jack’s favorite pastime… or an Awesome Concert like Garth Brooks, which was my Birthday present! Enjoy your good days and time together. Having fun is the Best ‘Medicine’ of all!
