Not sure how many of you out there are Cary Tennis of Salon.com fans, but he's been dealing with cancer, writing about it, a sort of reversal of his usual advice column duties. The latest update is that Blue Shield is refusing him radiation therapy.
Back in November, I was lucky enough that my own round with those rapidly growing little viral cells was cut short with the swipe of a burning wire. Although four months later, I'm still fighting back and forth with one of the insurance companies to take care of the claim. And them folks ain't nice. They ain't nice at all. They did everything except tell me to go frak myself, and then when I still wouldn't go away they proceeded to inundate me with forms and authorizations and fact hunting missions and dozens of calls that they refuse to return.
But Cary? He's still in the middle of the storm. So if you know him and his writing, or even if you don't, go over and show him some love. He's a standing member of the Tribe of Yes and one heck of a lovely dude.
