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 impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog thatís both equally educative and entertaining, and without a doubt, you've hit the nail on the head. The issue is something too few men and women are speaking intelligently about. I'm very happy that I found this in my search for something concerning this.

    After I initially commented I seem to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now whenever a comment is added I receive four emails with the exact same comment. Is there an easy method you can remove me from that service? Many thanks!

    I should add that I'm not that technical, so a solution that is easy to use would be more appropriate of the two. . . The website will work in a similar way to gumtree's classified ads. If this is possible would I also be able to add a charging mechanism for the ads using Joomla or WordPress.. . Any help would be much appreciated.. . Many thanks..
