I am thankful for my sister who recently spoke before the senate
in an attempt to repeal the device tax.
The device tax is a tax on any device used for scanning cancer victims.
My sister had colon cancer 7 years ago and last year it returned.
This tax is, of course, passed on to the patient, and the insurance companies,
who also pass it on to their consumers.
Last year she wouldn't have been healthy enough to go to DC.
But, this year she was able to do it.
We are so proud of her for speaking up for those who are not able to speak up for themselves.
I am so thankful for her.
