Plan Now For Changing Care Needs

Wow! There is nothing like a lung cancer DX to erase whatever I was doing  ...

I had just written an article for MSFocus magazine on ironically 'plan now for changing care needs' when lung cancer entered my world in Dec 2011 and I forgot to even share the article from their Winter 2012 issue ... that is until I was recently cleaning up. 

"...More importantly, the plus is that Patti is secure, safe, nearby, and has 24/7 care the rest of her life. Some days, I have to keep reminding myself of that positive outcome. And when you add it up. it is an extraordinary safety net."
