Shutdown over: What next?
Fighting for my life, not my job!!!
Watch her interview with Anderson Cooper.
- dsashin, CNN iReport producer
I am 30 years old and have a rare form of cancer known as Fibrosarcoma. I was within days of getting approved for a clinical trial at the National Institute of Heath but that has now been put on hold because of the shutdown. This drug that is being offered for the clinical trial can potentially save my life and the lives of many others battling cancer. Please stop focusing on national park closures and focus on what's really important, people's lives!!!
