Well as someone with #cancer, I must say, this sounds great. But didn't Obama put #Biden in charge of curing cancer in a "moonshot" in 2015? How did that go? Because we never heard a word about it.

Biden: If I'm elected, we're going to cure cancer cnn.com/videos/politic…
So first #Biden tells us that when he's elected all the Republicans are going to have an epiphany because Trump is a #GOP anomaly (he is not), and now he's going to cure #cancer.

Amazing what plummeting poll numbers will do for a campaign.
As someone who is currently very sick who hasn't been allowed to eat food for several days, and has been too sick to even be on Twitter in days, I'm just going to say that if #cancer were that easy to cure, 17M Americans, myself included, wouldn't have it.

I'm often asked whether there's a hidden cure for #cancer being suppressed. A common narrative is that a cancer cure would ruin the profits of "big pharma", and so they'd use their power to suppress it. Certainly it's a popular belief - but it's wrong. Here's why: THREAD (1/10)
So what is cancer? It's an entire class of diseases, with over 200 known types. Cancer can stem from virtually any cells type, with hugely varied prognosis & treatment options. What unifies all cancers is that they are the result of unregulated cell division (2/10)
It's even more complex too - cancers arise from mutations in our own cells. Every cancer is unique as the person who has it. This is a stark contrast to things like viruses and bacteria, which have some specific genetic fingerprint we can seek out - cancer IS us (3/10)

#cancersurvivor #cancer talk looks today at the final part of the cancer experience when the battle is lost. Again this may bother some folks but I think it's important information to consider. ACS provides some information especially for caregivers
The signs of death being near can be different for each person. No one can really predict what may happen at the end of life, how long the final stage of life will last, or when death will actually happen.
Sometimes death comes quickly due to an unexpected event or problem. Other times the dying process moves slowly and the patient seems to linger.

I'm sorry, the 'what' crisis/epidemic? The #OpioidCrisis?! No. How about alcohol? No, wait. Too many ppl think drinking is ok even though it kills over 3 MILLION ppl a year & has a hand in murder, rape, domestic/child abuse, horrific accidents & Prohibition didn't work. (Cont)
What about tobacco! We sued the hell outta them, yeah! Taught 'em a GOOD lesson. But, wait. Ppl can still buy tobacco products practically everywhere & uh oh, the money from the suit is running out. Big Government needs more dough. I know... Let's go after pain medication! (Cont)
Even though the vast majority of ppl who really need & use it do so responsibly & their addiction rate is less than 1%, since we can't get the cartels killing everyone with #illicitfentanyl and #heroin will hit the low hanging fruit. Doctors & pharmaceutical companies. (Cont)

After failing to repeal the #ACA in Congress in 2017, in 2/2018, 18 @GOP AG's & 2 GOP Governors Filed a Lawsuit to Repeal the #ACA in the U.S. Northern District of TX. 2/
.@GOP officials claim since #ACA’s individual mandate fine was repealed in 2017 tax law, the mandate can no longer be considered a “tax.” b/c of this change, they argue the mandate is now unconstitutional & the entire ACA must be struck down.

These are their names. 3/

REVEALED: Senate’s running cost could have provided one million boreholes! | TheCable thecable.ng/77-radiotherap…
@NGRSenate @bukolasaraki @benmurraybruce @dino_melaye @SenMarafaKabir @SERAPNigeria In a country where 46 percent of its citizens are currently living below the poverty line of $1.90 or N693.5 per day, the running cost could have been used to solve some basic needs. In this piece, TheCable looks at what that amount could have been used for in different sectors.

India (Bhārat), aka Republic of India (Bhārat Gaṇarājya) constitutes a mosaic of paradoxes and contradictions starting with the existence of gigantic socio-economic disparities which are in sharp contrast with the spectacular technological development in most productive sectors.
Such contradictions reflect significant measurement discrepancies which, in India's case, could be on the order of hundreds of millions of people.
Furthermore, there is the problem of Islamic terrorists, who are trained abroad and find easy fuel in the contradictions within it.
Finally, there’s agriculture which, by some estimates, accounts for 90% of India’s water consumption. Farmers meet irrigation demands by indiscriminately extracting groundwater, which some say accounts for a quarter of the world’s groundwater usage.

I am one of 17M Americans with #cancer right now.
Some of us will survive, some will not.
Our survival should not be predicated on our health insurance.
#M4A is an imperative step toward universal coverage and keeping us all living as long as possible.
#TuesdayMotivation
Every candidate must support #UniversalHealthCoverage. Access to care is the single most important issue for all Americans regardless of party. EVERYONE has a family member who's sick: parent, spouse, child. No one should face bankruptcy to care for a loved one.

My father's final illness bankrupted me. I got sick soon after. This is a common story. But unlike our peers in Canada, UK, France or Germany, we have no recourse but to accrue massive hospital bills and risk losing everything to care for a sick loved me.
#M4A is a promise.

I spent the weekend with family who I get to see little of because they live in other states or on other continents.
A few takeaways: my NIL, a 30yr old scientist like my niece, is a really good decent man. I note this because I see so many men on here behaving horribly.
1/
He was so naturally respectful of the women in the room. He didn't need to be asked or told anything. He just got up and cleared the table so my wife could keep talking, helped me with my wheelchair. Small things that matter It was really a good experience for me.
2/
I live a very isolating existence. i see very few who aren't medical people. Because it's hard for me to breathe, it's not always easy to talk. But I was so fortunate that serendipity allowed I had just enough air to talk politics, science & the globe with them for hours.

The GOP is still determined to end access to #healthcare for millions of Americans like me with #cancer and other life-threatening #PreExistingConditions.

Trump joins #antivaxxers to attack #Obamacare thinkprogress.org/trump-anti-vax… via @thinkprogress
Also, before the #ACA (also known as #Obamacare, which is a law not insurance) became law, women paid twice as much as men for health insurance, pregnancy was a #PreExistingCondition, mammograms and PAP tests were out-of-pocket expenses and 60M Americans were uninsured.
The #ACA has expanded #Medicaid in many states, created the healthcare marketplace which shows people a range of options within their states for affordable healthcare & it has saved millions of lives.
ACA will still be law after #M4A because it's essential healthcare protection.

For the past week I have been incredibly unwell from this illness yet having to work because we don't have an NHS in this country and I just want to slap people who think #M4A is too much because Biden said so.
DON'T EVER GET #CANCER OR ANYTHING ELSE, THEN.
Just saying.
You can't imagine how awful it is to not have options. You can't turn down work no matter how sick you are because you need every ridiculous amount of money people will pay you because your health insurance premiums and medications cost a freaking fortune.
There are things we need from the next Democratic president, whenever we get that person. And this attitude that it doesn't matter is just false. It matters if you are poor or sick, a woman or POC, #LGBTQ or #disabled. Policy matters. Platforms matter. I can't write this enough.

1/ It's all scaremongering isn't it about #brexit and #drugs? Stockpiling, price hikes, and, as @MattHancock warns, dead patients. Well, here's the lowdown and it's not pretty. With or without #softbrexit.

2/ Patients with long-term conditions such as #diabetes, #asthma or #schizophrenia, #blood pressure, #heart problems or #cancer down to daily medicines for #rashes and skin problems, take for granted that they will be able to get their medicines when they need them.
3/ According the UK's Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy

73 per cent of pharmaceutical imports in the UK come from the EU. This equates to around 37 million packets of medicines every month from the EU worth £18.3 billion.

Let’s say I have #measles and don’t have symptoms yet. If I decide to go shopping while infectious, I will spread that to 9 out of 10 babies, cancer patients, pregnant women, and unvaccinated ppl within breathing room of me. How do you notify those people?
If I have #measles and expose the public do you review security tapes to try to ID people? Do you put out a press release? Who answers their panicked calls for info? Who investigates them all? Could you miss work for 21 days because you need to be quarantined?
If I have #measles and expose the public and infect a pregnant woman who is going to deliver a baby but might be infectious how do you handle that? Deliver in isolation? Is the baby at risk? What if there’s an emergency? What If you just finished fighting cancer?

Last week we described in @JAMA_current how we collected, de-identified, scrubbed, linked, and analyzed real-world #EHR clinical data LINKED to tumor sequencing data, all obtained in the course of ROUTINE #cancer care #RWD #RWE

The manuscript represents deeply collaborative work done by large teams @FoundationATCG + @flatironhealth. The process of working with another team/company on everything from patient privacy to data pipelines to research queries could be the subject of an entire blog post (2/n)
Suffice it to say that we have LOVED working w/ @GauravSingalMD, Peter Miller, Gerald Li, @gaurav_bio, @BostonGenomics et al on this work.

More such collaborations will be required to break down data silos in healthcare! (3/n)

My birthday, a cultural and #MySpoons thread.

[GIF: Beyoncé & two other dancers birthday dancing because it's my Birthday Month n eryting.]
There's two main reasons I make a huge deal out of my birthday.

One's cultural, one's ... complicated but kinda tied it my whole #ChronicaIyIll deal.
Let's do cultural first. For my folk, celebrating your birthday has levels;

👉🏾 gratitude for surviving to the age you are
👉🏾 an occasion for us to get together & give/receive literal money to our community
👉🏾 sometimes spiritual milestones

#CashAppFriday
#ShowUpForWishes
Please share this.

You may know someone who is interested in one of my ebooks or could help in some other way.

TL;DR backstory: Late Feb, I has what should have been minor surgery.

They refused to sedate me, causing 5 weeks of complications, during which I could not work.
I was already on a 10 hour a week schedule.

Already dependent on my mother, who is supposed to be retired, until my business is back up.

Spent two months begging for delays, playing every card I have to delay bills or make partial payments and I'm out of time.
