I still may die of cancer. I prefer that. It may be sooner rather than later, if the Republicans and trump repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act with something that removes the pre-existing conditions clause and adds lifetime caps. Despite recent failures to pass repeal and replace legislation, the Republicans and trump seem hell-bent on bringing it all up again because how else will they be able to pass tax cuts for the rich unless they take away health care from 30 million Americans and restrict access to care for those of us with existing conditions?

I also thought that the scary uncertainty of my cancer was the ultimate in unsettling life worries, but now I know that the uncertainties for my personal safety, and the safety of the people that I love, are much worse under this president.
I am a Japanese American woman living with stage 4 cancer in a country with a very unstable president. It's not possible for me to end this blog post on a positive note. But, I'm not ready to give up yet. I'm writing my Congressman, (as lame as he is) and my Senators to let them know how I feel. I ask you to do the same. Please.

BTW...I can't bring myself to capitalize the "t" in trump; don't know why...just won't do it.
