Cancer and Mounting Medical Bills

Our lead story is all about dealing with the financial consequences of a cancer diagnosis in your family. Handling insurance deductibles, co-payments, and gaps in coverage.

Seeking guidance from a cancer counselor or social worker and getting referrals to financial resources. And considering medical bankruptcy for a fresh financial start, while you continue to channel your energy into healing.

Dangers of Energy Drinks.

Seems that everyone is touting the benefits of energy drinks on the internet, TV, radio, and magazines these days. But there are serious concerns with their safety, a matter of particular worry to parents of teens who like the boost from Monster drinks and energy shots. The FDA is currently investigating these energy drinks after five deaths were associated with their consumption.
