What can you get for four grand?

Well, for $4,000 you can get quite a few things on a wish list, and you might have change left over if you’re careful….
  • A decent used car
  • A cruise to Hawaii and Tahiti
  • New kitchen appliances
  • New furniture
  • A minor renovation to your house
  • A dental implant to replace a missing tooth

Or 5 days of chemotherapy drugs...

 that might save your son’s life.

Round 2 of the treatment began today, and there are 10 more to go. I am so thankful that there is still a safety net in this country to pay for drugs like this for people like our son, people who are not deadbeats and who worked hard at a job, and are not welfare cheats, and are not abusing the system, and who truly need help.
