Susan Gubar presents an insightful way to be thankful on this day. The Lemonade Fund gave a record number of grants this month, in time for Channukah, to Israeli breast cancer patients. This fund would never have been created without the eye opening experience of having cancer. Though no one would wish for it, one can be grateful for the good that can be born out of such an experience.

Financial Cost of Having Cancer
Suleika Jaouad, age 24, has been chronicling her experience with cancer. In this column she touches on the financial cost of having cancer. Even with universal health insurance (as we have here in Israel,) the ancillary costs of a serious illness are substantial. Great article. Thanks to charities such as the Lemonade Fund that help patients cope financially while undergoing treatment.
