A cancer survival story from a friend of mine (Oct. 2011)



If you’re a football fan like me, you’ve probably noticed your favorite team sporting pink socks, wristbands and towels. Or, maybe you’ve spotted a pink tow truck in your neighborhood recently.
That’s because the NFLAAA (formerly American Automobile Association),  and many other companies are supporting National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

What does President Obama say about the Affordable Care Act and breast cancer?
‘And because everyone should have access to preventive services, the Affordable Care Act requires most health insurance plans to fully cover recommended breast cancer screenings. This law also prohibits insurers from setting lifetime dollar limits on coverage, or from dropping coverage because of errors on paperwork. Beginning in 2014, companies will no longer be able to put dollar limits on annual benefits or deny insurance because of pre-existing conditions, including breast cancer. And starting October 1, Americans can visit www.HealthCare.gov to shop for affordable coverage in the new Health Insurance Marketplace.’  – Source
