As the saying goes 'there are no atheists in foxholes' there are no politics with cancer. Its an equalizer. No one wants it. Some of us get stuck with it.
I think sometimes I come across as being political when I talk about health care reform, politics, etc. I am not trying to be. Our household consists of one slightly to the left of liberal and one slight to the right of conservative (and a moderate cat). Both of us have dealt with cancer and being a caregiver. We cope. Our political differences sometimes show up - particularly when watching political speeches. But they never show up when we talk about access to health care. Particularly when talking about cancer health care. There may be some differences of opinion on how to pay for it, but we manage.
Cancer has no politics. So lets take the politics out of health care.
