My letter in the WA Post today

I had a letter in the WA Post today talking about why I'm opposed to animal research, even though I take so many animal-tested drugs and have undergone so many animal-tested procedures. Here's a link to it. Mine is the second letter on the page.

If you read the letter, you may notice that I've just signed up for hospice. Before you freak out, let me explain. Hospice is not like it used to be. Nowadays--at least with my insurance--one can pursue treatment while on hospice. One can be on hospice for a long time, or get on and off it. In fact, there are quite a few benefits for me to get set up on hospice, including in-house nurse visits, a 24-hour nurse help line, free drug delivery, and various other benefits to make my life easier.

I know that hospice is a loaded term and it might sound to some of you like I've given up, but I haven't! Trust me. I'm still hoping that the chemo will work.
