I WONDER WHY EVERY ONE THINK SEX RULES THE WORLD. WILL PEOPLE EVER TAKE A GOOD LOOK AT WHAT LIFE IS ALL ABOUT AND REALIZE SEX IS ONLY A SMALL PART OF LIFE AND THERE IS MORE TO IT THEN SEX. SOME PEOPLE ARE ALWAYS LOOKING FOR AN EXCUSE TO GET MONEY FROM SOME WHERE AND THINK EVERY THING IN LIFE IS A DISIBILITY. WAKE UP AND LIVE FOR TOMORROW AND LEARN TO ACCEPT EVERY THING THAT COMES YOUR WAY AS A BLESSING

I think you missed the point, Jeanie. This woman is actually fighting against being discriminated against because she had cancer, and she's using the only weapon she has.

The notion that the State Department can't send her anywhere where they can do a mammogram is pretty absurd, and I don't blame her for fighting it.

The real truth is that they probably don't want to take on any future medical bills.

As someone else who has had breast cancer, I say "Good for her." She should use whatever tool she had.
