Shaggydum80: Not to sound cynical, but is a petition going to do anything to convince a group of assholes that shut down government in the first place because they didn't want to give people government funded healthcare?
leehouse: While I doubt it will have any impact, I signed it.
Shaggydum80: Is there any way you could get a major news source to cover this? Major negative public opinion for damaging the care of a cancer patient is probably more of a language that politicians understand than a petition with a few hundred signatures.
basemetal: Clinical trials do not assure life saving measures.
oldsbone: Done.Hey Mods, can this go green? It's like Warthog said; the cost is minimal but there is potential upside. Plus, it's good to get the word out as to what the govt. is shutting down. We think of parks and some of the other things in the news, but how many people thought about clinical trials (with medicine schedules) being postponed?
kiwimoogle84: Actually, she had an interview with Anderson Cooper on CNN on Monday I believe. I've been following her cancer and babysat her daughter a couple times, they're SUCH good people. Will this get her treatment? Possibly not, but her whole family is pretty sick with grief.Obviously subby.
KangTheMad: I signed it. Your friend is adorable as all hell.
kiwimoogle84: She is an autism occupational therapist, too.
ManateeGag: kiwimoogle84: She is an autism occupational therapist, too.Really? my fraternity brother just published his first book about his life with autism and is a huge advocate for caring for adults with autism.
Bugerz: I shared this to Facebook. Hopefully it gets you more signatures.I can take it down if you want.
kiwimoogle84: Bugerz: I shared this to Facebook. Hopefully it gets you more signatures.I can take it down if you want.No, that's wonderful! We've all been doing the same thing. A single grain of rice, you know.
monty666: You're a really good friend to her. I hope this works out for her.
