My blog, as you may have noticed, tries to inform on issues as well as discuss my own dealings with cancer. Lisa captured my goal for this blog as follows:
Heim wishes to provide others with information they can use to get the treatment or benefits they need. "I actually got into it to try and get people interested in the drug shortage issue, because it was dramatically affecting ovarian cancer patients," she said.
Although the topics she writes about vary, Heim said her main goal in writing the blog is to create a space where people can gain links to community resources, understand when they qualify for Social Security benefits, and learn how to navigate Medicare and Medicaid, among other things. "Where do you find community services that can help you fill out these forms? Where can you go to get community mental health services?," Heim asked as examples. Answers to those types of questions are what Heim, who works as a corporate lawyer, would most like to provide her readers.I have not done the articles on links to community services here yet, although I hope to do more of more of that. I have begun compiling information by others about these issues which you can find at my new website www.helpkeepasisteralive.com. Please visit the site and leave messages about what you find helpful or what else you would like to see.
I also post frequently on my Facebook page about clinical trials and other items of interest for those dealing with ovarian or other cancers. It is a public page so check it out, like it, share it and otherwise promote it (if you would be so kind). www.facebook.com/helpkeepasisteralive
