Hey y'all. Thank you for the outpouring of support and conversation that the article and everyone else's has prompted. It's been amazing and a bit overwhelming. I'm taking a break from the internet today to regroup. I'm shy about doing this, but at the prompting of a friend, I'm gonna say, if you like the article, I'm uninsured, am the daughter of a mom with ovarian cancer from growing up in industrial Massachusetts, and I currently need to raise $160 to cover the cost of an out of pocket pelvic ultrasound to screen for some symptoms I'm worried about while I'm waiting for my free Alameda county health insurance to kick in, which could take a couple months. If you like this article and have $5 (or more) consider donating at the Paypal button on my website. Thanks!
