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.


UPI

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.

Cancer Has Mother and Son on the Run

Daniel Hauser, 13 refused treatment for Hodgkin’s lymphoma cancer because of religious objections and is now on the run with his mother, Colleen Hauser after a US judge ordered his parents to take him to a doctor for treatment.

Brown County District Judge John Rodenberg issued an arrest warrant for the boy’s mother after they failed to appear in a Minnesota court on Tuesday.

He also ordered that the boy be placed in foster care and evaluated by an oncologist as soon as he was found.

Would the state or doctors care as much if it were someone without insurance?  Furthermore, would they court order a doctor to treat them because there is treatment available with an 85-90% chance or recovery?
