Subprime Solution?This week NOW on PBS takes a look at the non-profit organization Just Price
Solutions and the man behind it, Brian Cosgrove. Cosgrove identified a problem: many low or moderate
income borrowers were getting steered into subprime scams because they had low credit scores. But these
scores were often low because the home buyers simply didn't take out enough loans or credit cards.
Cosgrove's goal was to help the millions of Americans with lower incomes purchase a home without being
caught in a "subprime" nightmare.
Just Price Solutions JPS was created to leverage NHSA’s 30 plus years experience in community
development financing with proven mortgage processes and technologies. Web based tools allow non-profit,
private sector and public organizations to form collaborative partnerships that were challenging in the past.  
Sustainable, fair and equal access to mortgage financing is now available to those who need it most.

with cancer, we recognize that we can no longer rely on the current system alone to give us the
breakthroughs we need. So, we are calling on the public to help take matters into our own hands,
investing in a revolution that will change the way scientist and clinicians work to understand and treat
these diseases. Stand Up To Cancer is more than a rallying cry. It is a galvanizing force created to
urgently move cancer research forward.

Medicare Patient Request Form for Medical Payment
You should only need to file a claim in very rare cases.

Medicare claims must be filed within one full calendar year following the year in which the services were provided. If a claim isn’
t filed within this time limit, Medicare can’t pay you its share. For example, if you see your doctor on March 22, 2009, the
Medicare claim for that visit must be filed by December 31, 2010. Check the MSN you get in the mail every three months to
make sure claims are being filed in timely, if they aren’t:
Contact Your Doctor or Supplier and ask them to file the claim.
If they don’t file the claim, call 1-800-MEDICARE and ask for the exact time limit for filing a Medicare claim for the service or
supply that you got. If it’s close to that time and your doctor or supplier still hasn’t filed it, it’s time for you to file a claim on your
own.

Kellsie’s Hope was started by Kellsie Marchbanks during her second round of cancer treatment.
After her passing in June 2011 of Osteosarcoma, the Marchbanks family formed Kellsie’s Hope Foundation Inc, to celebrate the life of this
remarkable young woman and to continue the work she started from her hospital bed.

Kellsie’s Hope Foundation Inc, mission is to lighten the load of families that have children suffering from cancer by
offering support for trips, and gifts that might otherwise be unattainable to a child with cancer. Kellsie’s foundation
is also dedicated to raising funds to support research into childhood cancers such as hers and supporting the
nursing field with a nursing scholarship each year.

Corporation and individuals making donations to Kellsie’s Hope Foundation can be assured that their donations will help to make a child with
cancer life a little easier and to support the goal of putting an end to childhood cancer.

Kellsie’s Hope Foundation will assist families in need with gifting, funding trips, and will also fund cancer research and various programs and/or
other support for the medical field such as nursing scholarships.
