In a sad reminder about how life-saving drugs can also be extremely dangerous, five dogs have died after eating skin cream their owners were using to treat cancer, the Food and Drug Administration announced in a statement yesterday. The FDA is warning pet owners who have this medicationknown as 5% Fluorouracil cream USP (or 5-FU) and sold under the brand names Carac, Effudex, and Fluoroplexto use care when storing and applying the chemotherapy drug, which can be fatal when ingested even in tiny amounts. In one report received by the FDA, a dog was playing with a tube of Fluorouracil cream and punctured it before the owner could get it away. Within two hours, the pet began vomiting and having seizures, and it died 12 hours later. In another case, a veterinarian attempted to treat a dog after it had eaten the contents of a tubebut he still got sick, and had to be euthanized three days later.

I just saw a quote that gave me shivers. Rainer Maria Rilke said, "Let everything happen to you. Beauty and terror. Just keep going. No feeling is final." No feeling is final. There are people undergoing nauseating chemotherapy right now. There are people with newborn babies who think they'll never sleep through the night again. There are people who are celebrating a promotion they have worked years to receive. There are people cashing their first paycheque. There are people signing bankruptcy paperwork. There are people going on the vacation of their dreams. There are people getting a divorce. There are people recovering from surgery. There are people preparing for a marathon. There are people winning and losing at the game of life in this particular moment. The thing is, each moment is different. You win some and you lose some. You also win when you lose and you often lose when you win.

Xeni's posted many times about her cancer , what it took to treat it , what helped , and the financial issues at stake . For CNN, she writes that Obamacare saved her life . With Republicans rushing to dismantle the healthcare law formally known as the Affordable Care Act, it's more important than ever to understand what Americans will face if insurance companies are put back in charge. Even if you think you have good insurance, you might be surprised to learn what it won't cover if the ACA goes away. I am a breast cancer survivor because the Affordable Care Act, politicized by the GOP as "Obamacare," ensures that for-profit insurance companies can't deny me coverage because I had the audacity to be diagnosed with cancer. My insurance provider paid people to work hard to deny me life-saving chemotherapy because they thought I had a preexisting condition.
