Letters to the Editor - Sept. 29, 2013

(Continued)

Although the price is high in terms of my body, my new life is going to be better, much better.

Thanks to Medicare, new affordable healthcare testing and cancer treatment policies have helped keep my medical bills relatively minimal.

I’ve been able to take care of the cost of most treatment, but it’s tough because I live on disability checks.

That really doesn’t matter because my life is on the line. My friends and family have had my back every step of the way. Their loving concern and grace makes them priceless.

Guys like Donnie Raffaele and my stepdad, John McCarthy, and my sons, Sam and Vassar, have helped me keep my feet on the ground.

Living dolls like Jana Witherspoon, Judy Funderberg Barnett, Jackie Hopkins and Linda Naylor Garrett keep me smiling and help keep my hopes high. My mom, Oma, and my daughter in-law, Julie, are amazing, as usual.

Keeping my sense of humor helps quite a bit.

I met with one doctor last week and he said, “You’ve got six months to live.”

I told him I couldn’t pay his bill in six months, so he gave me another six months.
