One Small Step ......

I am currently lobbying government to have the drug Afinitor included in our province's spring budget so that kidney cancer patient's can then access the drug more readily, without having to worry about the massive financial burden it currently places on those who need it most.

You may ask, well what can "one" person do to make this happen?  I would reply by saying "one small step" so I jumped in, feet first and thought I would give it my best try.  I have moved a few mountains in the past within our health care system because I do want to see change happen in areas that need improvement. 

Each of us has an obligation to do whatever we can to improve health care in our provinces, states and countries. 
No point in thinking about what change could "I" have made, without taking that first step towards making it.

I have very high hopes that my initial request for the Afinitor funding  WILL indeed happen!  I'll keep you posted.

As you say Deb each of us should at least try to contribute to society in a way that serves others best. Good for you.
