Paulette's 22nd Blog Post | Cancer Won't Know What Hit It! I Am Still on the Journey

I was admitted on Saturday (July 1) to the Smilow Cancer Hospital at Yale University in Downtown New Haven, CT. As I am sure you can imagine, it was a setback for me. As I have shared in my past few blog posts, I have spent the past few months doing significant research into alternative cancer treatments. I was ready to move forward on the next stage of my journey. My setback is certainly a disappointment, but it has revealed some beautiful things. In these past days, this bump in the road has shown that I am blessed beyond measure.

Paulette's Sixth Blog Post | Health Care for All: A Matter of Life, Death, and Debt

I feel sick.  My head is pounding and my stomach is unsettled. No, I don’t need to see a doctor.  I feel this way because of the current state of our health care system.  Yesterday, the Republicans unveiled a so-called plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA) that has been in place for the past 7 years, also known as Obamacare.  It claims that it will lower health care costs (for who?), bring down artificially high drug prices (again, for who?), and give people greater choices in selecting health care that meets their needs.  Let me tell you about my own personal experience with the ACA over the past five years and you will see why I am so disturbed.
