#549 Mad As Hell



Alive and still kicking, thank you very much.




Outrage, infuriate, enrage, incense, anger, scandalize, offend, affront, shock, horrify

You pick the verb that would best portray what cancer patients (and anyone with a moral compass) would feel after hearing a statement from the White House--"He's going to die anyway"--and use it to confront the ignorance, apathy, indifference, lack of concern, etc. etc. etc. surrounding a terminal disease.  These words were spewed from a staff member of the President of the United States towards John McCain, a decorated war veteran, a respected member of Congress, and someone living with a terminal disease.  And no apology was given, no reprimand from the higher ups.  Nada.  This is what it means when we marginalize terminal cancer patients--the gig is up, let's not waste another dime on you poor bastards.

Excuse me for being so blunt but where the hell is the_______(see any of the above highlighted words)?  Those of us with a terminal disease must face living or dying every single day and, believe me, it does not sit well when someone so publicly dismisses us with the declaration--you are dying anyway--which has the ominous tone of: Let's stop the feeding, the care, the research because it won't make a damn bit of difference. Seriously? Is this the philosophy from Washington--where decisions are made about our health with regards to where funds go for lifesaving research?

Show me America still has a moral compass by clicking here to make a donation (100% goes to research) to the UW Carbone Cancer Center .  We are worthy and NOT DEAD YET.

Thanks for reading #549 of 7777.
