In order to take the medicine my physician has prescribed for my post-menopausal osteoporosis after my recent Dexa scan, I must insert a needle into my abdomen every day -- which is scary, inconvenient, and very expensive. The medicine, Fortéo, which goes directly into the bloodstream, is safer at my age than the pill I have no taken for at least 10 years. At the beginning of 2010, because of the recession, I lost my regular adjunct position at a local university, drastically changing my annual income. The letter from your foundation and the personal attention that Jackie Bruckheimer has given reassures me that I can afford this unexpected, unpleasant change in my health care. Jackie was knowledgeable, kind, considerate, and understanding. Thank you.
