These are Two of my Favorite Things...

The Third Annual Blogger Boobiethon for Breast Cancer is all over the sphere. My loved ones have been lucky enough to have been spared this illness <KOW> , but I have a take on the issue anyway. This year, I was juror to a medical malpractice lawsuit filed by a breast cancer sufferer, Monica Ochoa. In the end, we awarded Ms. Ochoa enough to retire upon for the rest of her probably shortened life, but shorted her $200K to send her and others a message. We found her 20 percent at fault for her head-in-the-sand approach to her own medical care. Please, ladies, keep your head in the game. And folks, go to the site and give generously.

Oh, yeah, at the site, you can get a glimpse of what they're fighting for!

To paraphrase Cary Elwes, "There's a shortage of perfect breasts in this world; it would be a shame to neglect yours."

    Thanks for spreading the word!

    And about the case:

    You have to be a partner in your own health care. You can't blame a doctor for not helping you if you don't follow through with their suggestions. Love the lowered award, though I feel for the patient.
