With the high cost of cancer treatment, it is important that all of our family pitch in and help!
Seriously, after losing her job and health benefits, my daughter-in-law was out in the cold as far as paying for her outrageously expensive cancer treatments.
She was able to enroll in her husband’s plan. Thank you, Mr. Obama and the Affordable Care Act. Otherwise she may have been denied due to a “pre-existing condition”.
She received help with the extremely expensive cancer medication ($7000 per month for one drug) through the University of Alabama (UAB) and the drug company.
For the GoFundMe campaign that her friends set up to help them with the high costs of cancer treatment.
She and her husband live frugally and well within their means. Their cars are a 1998 Jeep and a 2003 Nissan. Nothing flashy. My son’s mechanical skills (learned from his Dad) help to keep these cars on the road.
We don’t live in Canada or some other country where medical care is a right rather than a privilege of the wealthy.
The hospital where she worked as a nursing administrator could not find a way to let her work part-time. This is in sharp contrast to my husband’s treatment at the medical facility where he worked. He stayed on the payroll for almost three years even though he often had to work from bed. I recall other administrators coming to his room for conferences and business meetings.
If you need your floor cleaned, give us a call. Our baby Mabel is available in between naps.
