critical chemotherapy drug shortages!

some of you have seen this from me already on Facebook, but for those who haven't please take a minute to copy and paste this link -- it's an article that appeared in today's news about the critical shortages of some chemo drugs used to treat blood cancers.  Two of the drugs in critically short supply nationwide are methotrexate and cytarabine.  Andrew receives these drugs every cycle!! They are vitally important to his recovery. The above article includes links to your local congressional representative -- the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society is urging people to contact their reps and ask them to take the necessary steps to end the drug shortages.  I've already done this -- please take a minute and send a quick email, we would be so appreciative!  These drugs have been vital to the progress he's made against the disease so far, and he's only halfway through!

thank you!!
