Viral video helps dying woman get cancer drug

Darlene Gant sat in her hospital bed, barely able to lift her head. She was writing letters to her 11-year-son for his upcoming birthday, his eventual high school and college graduations and even a future marriage.

"Did you always know I loved you?" she wrote in a card meant for his 12th birthday. "Of all the things in my life I could have or should have done differently there’s one thing I’d never change, having you as my son."

Gant, 46, who is suffering from stage-four breast cancer, has been told she doesn't have long to live. She worried she wouldn't be around to see her son grow up despite a trial drug that could prolong her life.

    Iím amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog thatís equally educative and amusing, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is something not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this during my hunt for something regarding this.

    I'm not sure exactly why but this site is loading extremely slow for me. Is anyone else having this issue or is it a issue on my end? I'll check back later and see if the problem still exists.

    I must express my thanks to this writer just for rescuing me from such a dilemma. As a result of surfing around throughout the online world and seeing suggestions which were not productive, I figured my entire life was over. Living without the strategies to the problems you've resolved through the article content is a critical case, and those which could have badly damaged my career if I hadn't encountered your site. Your primary training and kindness in playing with all the pieces was valuable. I'm not sure what I would have done if I hadn't encountered such a thing like this. I can also now look ahead to my future. Thanks for your time so much for the high quality and result oriented help. I won't be reluctant to propose your web blog to anyone who will need counselling on this issue.
