I didn't realize how long it had been since I've made a blog post. Time seems to moving quickly this year. Somehow it is almost May when it feels like it should still be February.
I've been lucky to contribute to a few great pieces this year thus far. Here are some of my favorites....
Ps. We got a dog (Ruby) and I will be including a photo in this post. You're welcome.
Claudia McGinnis poses for a portrait at her home in Fishers, Ind. on Friday, March 8, 2019. After McGinnis underwent a double lung transplant in 2008, she developed an intolerance to one of her anti-rejection drugs. Doctors prescribed Sirolimus to replace it, but the retiree’s Medicare Part D plan will not pay for the drug. She appealed but was rejected and cannot afford to pay $450 monthly. Without Sirolimus, she risks dying if her body were to reject her lungs. (Leah Klafczynski/New York Times)
“I hope I don’t go into chronic rejection,” she said. “You can’t cure chronic rejection. You die.”
