I Have Cancer -- And I'm More Stressed By America's Healthcare System Than My Disease
I was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer 13 years ago. I have never been in remission. What I didn't know then, as I started my adult life, was that I would have a pre-existing condition for the rest of my life. The fact that I had cancer would be a hurdle made manifest in every aspect of my life; where I live, where I can get adequate care, and how to maintain continuous insurance coverage.
