There are a lot of other people out there.” (Audience applause.) “I do want to say one thing. A lot of people are going through what I’m going through, and they don’t have the advantages I do. I’m so conscious of that every day because it involves the whole family and it’s tricky and it becomes a big strain. In our case, we’ve got the resources and access and I’ve got this fabulous family, and so I am much more aware of what other families are going through and I think we all have to be, as a matter of fact.”
