I FAXED you my blood results yesterday. Two weeks ago,
I had a phone call at 10:15 PM on a Friday night from Loyola
trying to schedule my liver biopsy!
I refused. I was terrified my blood results were disastrous
and that's why they needed the biopsy and were calling at

It is a disaster greater than most people are willing to
believe of there doctors. I talk to and read emails
from over a thousand people a week and none of them like what
there doctors are doing. It is not just me or you, it
comes with the virus.
What will it take to get the attention of the media
so we can get some political clout so we can get some decent
treatment from the medical community???
I have been on a crusade for over 4 years and the stars who
could get the attention started are shying away from the battle.
What ever happened to the activists of the 1960s?
I am willing to go to Washington and demonstrate until I
May sound extreme but I challenge anyone to answer the phones
