Joyce, my thoughts are with you and Butch. Take care of yourself, and hold on to each other.
Lainy, you did such an amazing thing by organizing the letter campaign and moving it along. A great big thanks!
>>>Here's a crazy thought--does anyone have any pull or know of anyone in the television industry, specifically soap operas, weekly medical drama shows etc? What if an idea was planted in the writers' minds about a docudrama surrounding cholangiocarcinoma? I got re-hooked on my soaps while I was caring for Dad and it seemed to me there was always some current issue that was being emphasized...some story being told. Just a kooky thought. Wish I knew of someone~my only claim to fame is that a former employee was previously the nurse for the musician Prince's parents...oh yeah, and also I had a 4th or 5th cousin who won some money on the game show Jeopardy a jillion years ago.
