Gratitude - November 4th 2007


Recommended Posts

Sunday and beautiful

buy cold weather.

Grateful today for people

that are able to get a second

opinion, specially people in

the States.

Where I live, Quebec, Canada

we are very backword and you

can't even change family doctor.

So never can't get a second

opinion from the medical field,

but that doesn't stops me from

having my own opinion of doctors

and I always feel free to tell

them to their faces what I think

of their ways.

No wonder I'm not a favorite

patient in all the hospitals

here but at least it keeps the

doctors on their toes (they

look ridiculous) when they see


Have a good I will have one also.

I'm thankful that Proctor and Gamble has a medication assistance program.

I was dx'd with Crohn's Disease in 2000. The medication I take for it, (an aspirin-based pill), costs nearly $300 a month.

Our insurance was cancelled last month.

Proctor and Gamble sent me 3 months worth of medication at no cost. It arrived in the mail on Friday.

That's a miracle for me.

My 2 cents worth from treatment forum sticky list!!!

The Partnership for Prescription Assistance brings together America’s pharmaceutical companies, doctors, other health care providers, patient advocacy organizations and community groups to help qualifying patients who lack prescription coverage get the medicines they need through the public or private program that’s right for them. Many will get them free or nearly free. Its mission is to increase awareness of patient assistance programs and boost enrollment of those who are eligible. Through this site, the Partnership for Prescription Assistance offers a single point of access to more than 475 public and private patient assistance programs, including more than 150 programs offered by pharmaceutical companies. To access the Partnership for Prescription Assistance by phone, you can call toll-free, 1-888-4PPA-NOW (1-888-477-2669).
