Grace White is no stranger to adversity.

As a single mother, she raised her daughter, held down a full-time job as a paralegal and faced all of life's challenges as they came along. After divorce from "What's-his-name," when middle-age approached, she decided she wouldn't go through the typical crisis that most mid-lifers go through. She took a route that eventually made her quite familiar to many residents in Lockeford and Lodi.

    Hey, It's sad... you are kind of hard on the doctors there. I mean they have taken God given intelligence and talent and spent years in medical schools built by taxpayers, so why shouldn't they charge you a kazoo to save your life.
    Oh, wait, I see your point.
    But now we sound like communists.

    There are many health supplements that are effective in keeping an immune system strong! I believe it is easier and less expensive to try to avoid things that we ALL know increase our risk of acquiring Cancer! I also believe that certain supplements can keep our Liver, Pancreas, Kidneys, prostate ect.; functioning well. Knowledge is everything. Look up the words Tangeretin, Selenium, and best of all Carnivora. I may one day get Cancer but at least I know I am doing my best not to let it get inside of me that easily! I wish Grace the best.

    Doctors force those with Cancer, as well as their loved ones to sell EVERYTHING they own to pay for the medical costs of trying to live! I don't feel the less fortunate should have to DIE because they cannot help a Doctor or a hospital become RICHER! All life is precious and everyone deserves to live! Doctors, Hospitals and Insurance companies should not be allowed to play God; deciding who they will help based on wallet size! Check out N-Acetyl Cysteine
    at www.swansonvitamins.com It is an inexpensive super antioxident theat is inexpensive! Knowledge is everything!
