Homemade Healthcare: How Art, Love and Facebook beat Greed, Fear and Cancer

This is the story of my friend Krista and how she and her husband, Frank, are making a difference in the world with their story... it makes me cry every friggin' time I think about it.

If you'd like to help make a difference in their lives AND get some really cool original art check out Frank's website:


  1. thanks Jul,
    We just buckled up for the ride. waiting to see what happens!!!

  2. Very cool! We have insurance that covers 80% of our expenses until you reach a certain our of pocket expense level and then it pays 100%. When you have a $50,000 procedure, that's a LOT! And they were lucky that the cost went down for paying cash. When the Sports Fan was in that accident last year, the cost went UP because he had insurance and was getting a cash settlement. Having insurance cost us an extra $1700! If we'd had no insurance, it would have been $7000 less expensive because we'd have paid nothing. The system is definitely broke but are those guys in Congress fixing it right or just going along with the insurance companies that are at the root of the problem?


Oooooh BLoGgEE love!
