As today marked the 30th anniversary of the “War on Cancer,” Elizabeth Edwards and Lance Armstrong appeared at a US Senate Committee Panel to push for a renewed fight against cancer.

Elizabeth Edwards, one of the nation’s most outspoken and effective advocates for universal healthcare coverage, takes this issue very personally.

Rural Poverty & Ecomomic Disparity w/Video of Mudcat Saunders

A couple of weeks ago, I attended the South Carolina Presidential Candidate “Debate” as a credentialed blogger and had the opportunity to talk for a minute with Mudcat Saunders, after the debate.
