No more waiting

I met Joyce Long during an assignment for The Oregonian about national drug shortages affecting patients. The story can be seen here. She was visiting the doctor for chemo. Since being diagnosed with myeloma, things changed. Her priorities are different. She doesn't wait anymore, she just does. For two years she resisted from wearing her bleach-white Birkenstock shoes. They remained untouched in her closet for two-years. Not anymore.
