Cancer Drug-Thyrogen in continued shortage

It’s been a while since I updated on the Thyrogen shortage happening in Canada. I am including all the letters so that new readers can see the situation from beginning to the current announcement.

I am now at a point that I will be making an appointment to speak to my Dr’s about allowing me to go “hypo” under close medical observation. Hypo is not a safe option for me because I have a heart condition, however sitting here with cancer still in my body for months and months of doing nothing is (in my opinion) also not a safe option. I stress constantly that the cancer is growing and that I’ll get terminal before Thyrogen is available. Now I know that seems dramatic, and scary, but it’s where my mind goes and I can’t help having these kinds of fears. I just want to move forward in my treatment and at least feel like we’re doing something, anything to keep moving in the right direction.

I am really disgusted that this shortage is continuing this long. Does anyone even care that people like me are sitting here with CANCER doing NOTHING to get better? They need to get their shit together and get this shortage solved. AS it sits now We could be waiting until spring of 2012. If my hunch is correct, we’ll get  ANOTHER shortage letter at that time.

Now for the letters the first is Dated Nov 2010 with the most recent being July 2011. For the current status please skip right to the last letter.

So excited to share!

I have huge news! I am so excited I can hardly contain myself. Let me just get it over with:

ShesConnected Conference 2011 - I'm Going!
“She’s Connected” is an exclusive conference with Canada’s 200 top digitally connected women, and brands who want to connect with them. Some of you may have heard of it and other are probably thinking “huh?”. This conference is a really big deal to me. I have so much to learn from the amazing section of women I have been chosen with. I also have lots to share with them. This is not a conference you can easily buy your way into by purchasing a ticket. It is invite only, and I am humbled to have been grouped among women of this caliber. The speakers are amazing this year with my personal favorite being Celebrity Chef Christine Cushing she truly is “Fearless” in the kitchen. I could learn a thing or two from her. 
Ok, I could really go on and on about this, but suffice it to say; this conference is important, it’s a huge event and I still can’t believe I was selected!!

Now I have to figure out what I will wear! Anyone wanna help me come up with conference outfits for a plus size woman??
