Peg from Minnesota

My husband was diagnosed with liver bile duct cancer in December of 2017, he just died November 13th. We were very open about our story. My husband's name was Kirk. As I am an RN, and worked for an insurance company for almost a year I had a very good understanding of what was going on with my husband's health, how messed up our medical system is. At the age of 57, my husband was 59, it’s amazing how my financial situation changed dramatically due to my husband's illness and death. I would be happy to share our story.
