Re: Daddy daughter dance

Thanks so much for letting me share my moment with you. My husband was stage 3, perforated through colon wall and encapsulated with 4 out of 33 lymph nodes. We went onto genetic testing at Sloan and though he tested negative for lynch syndrome they screen him as he is positive because he most likely...

My kids seemed to be young enough to shelter from the full impact of the situation and like others have said h...

Re: Obama-Care is "in the House !"

What a great debate, so many are afraid to really talk about the issues in front of us and it is good to see/read. I for one support the reform bill but as a RN in the system recognize no matter what system is in place there is abuse and fraud, unfortunately. Making incentives to avoid fraud and hav...

Re: candidates stance on health

I guess I am going to delete my two posts as well, I feel passionately about the topic but this does not appear to be the forum to discuss them......... As a RN I really hope everyone looks into the true problems facing this country and where the candidates stand so they can make informed decisions.
