We had two fundraisers thrown for us.  One was through my dad’s work, they put on, like, a big bowling fundraiser.  And the other one was through my husband’s work, they did a huge fundraiser.  That was probably the most support that I can talk of that we’ve gotten.  The rest was—my husband’s company offered an excellent insurance plan.  We had opted to pay a little bit more over the years to have the top of the line plan, so we were very lucky, I can’t imagine for people who don’t have that kind of plan.  We were able to have that for a year because he stayed, technically stayed employed with them for a year. And then, we were able to pick up a COBRA plan because I didn’t work full time at the time.
