oh. my. god.

* Image swiped from Twisty Faster, my favorite spinster aunt with cancer. It's the receipt from her latest cancer med. For a one-month supply. It's not covered by her insurance.

** You know what kills me? The "ACCEPTED" text on the receipt. I don't think many people would be surprised to know that line would read "DECLINED" if Dan had to buy the same med for his cancer.

*** Seriously, $40,000 for a one-year supply of medicine to keep you alive? What are you supposed to do? Take out a third mortgage? Rob a bank? Sell a child? I've only got one kidney left, y'all.

**** Comment by Spinning Liz, a lymphoma patient, on this post: "If [my] cancer recurs I’ll need a stem call transplant, in which case my name will legally change to Old MacDonald because I’ll have no choice except to purchase the farm."

Yikes! This is the kind of thing that truly divides the haves from the have-nots... it's either health insurance with a prescription drug benefit, or else....
