WHAT A GREAT GUY…AND HE’S HERE IN TEMPE

Did you see the article in the AZ Republic today about the PhD student who won his insurance battle with Aetna, to get coverage beyond his 300,000 lifetime maximum?
Read it here….

It’s a great story of a strong student who is fighting for his life after being diagnosed with advanced cancer at the age of 30.   He used Twitter to ask  for assistance from his insurance company….and got it.

I think we all can imagine how devastating such an illness is, let alone the financial challenges this fellow has.
If you are interested in assisting him, donations at his site:
poopstrong.org/   ……are just the thing.
I checked out  his shirts and will be ordering some. I must say, you’ve gotta admire his “Rock the Pouch” shirt….turning having a colostomy bag into a badge of honor….I love it!
