I sent the following to my senator this afternoon:
I have been hearing about children whose chances for clinical trials have been halted by Congress.
I am so very tired of the political games you all are playing.
Senator: I have cancer and am saddened by what you are NOT DOING for sick people, people whose chances for a cure by traditional cancer medicine have run out. They want to take a chance on Clinical Trials. Luckily, I am doing well and do not need to seek a Clinical Trial.
You are standing in their way. Who elected you to "Play God" with peoples' lives???? My heart goes out to the sick people who are waiting for the Senate's cold, calulating decision.
