To whom it may concern,
My name is Linda Washington and I am writing to you today because I wanted to thank president Obama and his staff for saving my life. I am a cancer survivor and I have been dealing with chronic pain on my left side breast since I had my mastectomy and reconstructive surgery I even ask the doctor to remove what he put in on my left side because I was in so much pain. I was told because I had so much scar tissue it would not be a good idea to remove anything so for years I was living with pain but I been complaining that I was reaching death ears. Until December 14, 2010 I had enough and I wrote president Obama and less then a month president Obama and his staff made it possible for me to find out what was going on with me and the news is not good at all. I found out that my left breast expander and implant ruptured and my sternum was never placed right because my breast look like one it all together and the doctor I am seeing now let me know I am a challenge and the first thing he has to do is remove the rupture expander and implant first that I have to start from the beginning again like having a mastectomy all over again. Being told you have breast cancer is bad enough because you have so many emotions going through your mind but to have to live the nightmare again is not right at all. That rupture expander and implant has been in my body for years and who knows about the infection it might has cause my body and to have to live this is unbelievable. My sternum is going to be the major problem I guess because the doctor have to see if he could even fix that problem all this could have been avoided when I was asking for help because I was in pain and no one cared excepted president Obama and his staff and want to thank him and his staff for saving my life because without them getting involve I would still be living with a rupture expander and implant. I have to have surgery next week to get things started again but it would not be happening without Obama and his staff. If you find this story a concern you could [comment below]. Thank you linda Washington
