Hot Off the Presses

May is VHL month.

We'll be holding another fundraiser of some sort.

May 9th.

More details to follow.

And my sweet boy was turned down for insurance again today...life insurance this time.

Several months ago Dale began speaking to our insurance agent about different ways to reduce insurance rates for a very new male driver who did not qualify for the good-student discount. The insurance agent mentioned that if we purchased life insurance policies for Steven and David, we would received a substantial break in our car insurance premiums. Dale, it seems, neglected to divulge the whole story of Steven.

David now has a license, and today I had the pleasure of securing those better insurance rates! I called our insurance agent to schedule David's driving class and make plans for life insurance for both boys. After a long and convoluted conversation involving many questions from the agent and many honest answers from me that touched on the topics of the gene, the tumors, the surgeries and the lack of medication to keep the disease at bay, the very helpful insurance agent, herself a long-term survivor of Hodgkins lymphoma, said, "Oh my goodness, there has to be a cure."

And then she asked how Steven handles all of this news, and I got teary.
Just a little.
On the phone with our insurance agent!
Oh my!

Fundraising..."there has to be a cure."
