Everyone on it knows different Web sites that are related to can- cer. .... I feel that my experience goes a step farther than breast can- cer, so I was glad to find the Inter- net," said Short. The Web address is <http://www.oncolink.upenn.edu>. Short said she relies on her fami- ly members and friends for a less formalized approach to support than is offered in groups. "My family and friends are there for me at every step - for the bad news, for second opinions, for each chemo and for tests. They make the bad days fun. Their love is my strength," said Short. Short said she is fortunate that her friends and family have under- stood her needs so well, but some cancer patients do not fare as well. Each patient's coping needs are different, she explained, but for her, not denying her illness is crin- cal. "People deal with it the way they deal with it," said Short. "But it's important to me that people talk about my disease with me when I need to talk about it - not minimize it," said Short. "I don't want to talk about it all the time. but I can't pretend that it doesn't exist. "All of the things that I've done have taught me to love my body and love being in my body," she said.

Our new idea in Long Term care does away with confusing "benefit periods"... but there's a catch. It may cost you less, Now there's a policy that cov- ers both nursing home and home health care from the same sizeable "dollar account" -- a set sum of money Y__0_R can use. So you have more flexibil- ity than policies with separate fixed benefits -- yet remark- ably, your premium rate will likely be lower. That's a real breakthrough!
