All we ask is please wear the mask!

Dear Warriors,

I have been with you for about 13 years. During that time I have featured your stories, shared my personal stories, answered your questions and provided much needed information on the latest developments in the field of cancer. I have cried with you and been with you through some of your most horrific journeys.

You know my passion, because I walked in your shoes. But I’m scared. I’m scared because we have something attacking us called Covid-19! It’s real! My brother had it!

We don’t fully know much about this disease, except it can kill you. Initially, we were under the assumption it was detrimental to people over 60, but over time, we learned it has attacked and killed younger people. Epidemiologist are experimenting with different vaccines, but Dr. Fauci, says at best, it may not be available until next year! Even then, cost, availability, insurance coverage will be the question!

Who is Dr. Anthony Fauci? According to The National Institution of Allergy and Infectious Disease:

Dr. Fauci was appointed Director of NIAID in 1984. He oversees an extensive research portfolio of basic and applied research to prevent, diagnose, and treat established infectious diseases such as HIV/AIDS, respiratory infections, diarrheal diseases, tuberculosis and malaria as well as emerging diseases such as Ebola and Zika. NIAID also supports research on transplantation and immune-related illnesses, including autoimmune disorders, asthma and allergies. The NIAID budget for fiscal year 2020 is an estimated $5.9 billion.

Dr. Fauci has advised six Presidents on HIV/AIDS and many other domestic and global health issues. He was one of the principal architects of the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), a program that has saved millions of lives throughout the developing world. This man is recognized throughout the world as the top expert in epidemiology. When this disease first hit it was an unknown entity. He, along with Dr. Birx, another person tops in her field, admittedly said they didn’t have all the right answers. But they worked tirelessly to find the answer. Now with 146,000 deaths and counting they are still trying to find the magic bullet.

But one thing is a proven fact, if everyone wore masks, washed hands and practiced save distancing, it will cut the spread of Covid-19 by 75%. People are actually filing lawsuits because they are told to wear a mask! Right to life extends past the fetus! You can be in good health and transmit Covid-19! Could you live with yourself if you caused the death of a love one? Florida bragged about their low rate of Covid-19 cases. They didn’t enforce safety rules, now look at them! People are even laughing at people wearing masks! You fight to survive cancer, only to die of Covid-19?

Wear the damn mask! If you don’t and YOU catch Covid-19, don’t go to the hospital, where you can infect our front line workers OR use a much needed ventilator, NO, stay home and die laughing!
