@Aspiriationally Natalie I just lost my beloved cousin to cancer at age 30. He had always been super healthy, worked out all the time, and fought like a beast against it to the end. So to read this kind of ignorance actually makes me kind of irrationally angry. ANYONE CAN GET SICK. ANYONE.

Fuck Ted Cruz.
