For the second time in five years, I will be fighting cancer. I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer in 2005, and was diagnosed with adenocarcinoma in situ (cervical cancer) last week. I've been very fortunate in that both these cancers have a very high cure rate. I believe that healthcare is not a privilege but a basic human right. Access to it should not be limited to those who can afford it.
