Thanks Joe!

I sent the link to a dear friend of mine with metastatic b/c. She has severe lymphedema and her insurance company is refusing to pay for her compression sleeve. There is a sample letter of appeal on the website that she is going to send to her insurance company. She has been struggling with writing yet another letter and was thrilled to find one perfect for her situation.

Thanks again for your help and for this website - truly a blessing to so many.

Best regards,
