Cancer Survivor Makes Jewelry Out Of Expired Meds

“A California cancer survivor who says she was “deeply in debt because I was underinsured” earns money selling costume jewelry made out of expired medications.

Susan Braig, 61, of Altadena, makes necklaces, earrings and other items using pharmaceutical pills and tablets. She told the Los Angeles Times the idea came to her in 2007 — three years after she was diagnosed with breast cancer and began undergoing chemotherapy.


I commend Braig for thinking outside the box, and coming up with a creative way to make money to pay for her medical bills.

But it’s a shame that so many Americans are underinsured or uninsured. We mustn’t allow Republicans to water down Obama’s affordable health care plan.

Braig is now cancer-free, and I wish her good luck in all her future endeavors.
