I hope we can all help Karen out. She is such a fablous person, friend, mom...and she does not ask for help easily. Let's all step up and do what we can for Karen. Thank you Pleasanton weekly for sharing Karen's story.

Obamacare is a wonderful thing. Has she tried that yet? She can't e turned down for pre-existing conditions you know.

How about setting up a fund that might benefit anyone in similar circumstances?

While I'm sure Karen is a wonderful individual, it seems inappropriate to focus attention on one individual when there are no doubt many others facing the same or worse conditions who don't enjoy the advantage of knowing a journalist with a sweet tooth.

Will you lend the same support to my mother when her medical expenses mount? She's not really much of a cook, but she's one heck of a grandmother.

Now this is the type of article the PW should publish more often. Citizens in need or local success stories, not political firestorms.
