Never too old to learn?
Things I have learned over the past months:
face of cancer
1. Don’t take being young and healthy for granted.
Texas spotted whiptail
2. Lizards and spiders and creepy crawlies which would send me running no longer bring fear -they are nothing compared to Cancer!
3. There is a great goodness in people- even perfect strangers.
4. I would be grateful to the Government of the United States and in particular Congress as thanks to their decisions there is a glimmer of hope for those fighting the rare diseases
An orphan drug is a pharmaceutical agent that has been developed specifically to treat a rare medical condition, the condition itself being referred to as an orphan disease. The assignment of orphan status to a disease and to any drugs developed to treat it is a matter of public policy in many countries, and has resulted in medical breakthroughs that would not have otherwise been achieved due to the economics of drug research and development
