fuck insurance companies all over the world

what good are insurance companies if they don't allow a patient to get the best health care possible??? a family friend was recently diagnosed with cancer. unfortunately he was in stage 4 by the time it was discovered. when he was first diagnosed his doictor wanted him to go to the UC Davis cancer center but his insurance refused to cover it.

within 2 weeks, he was in the hospital to be fitted with a feeding tube and an iv for chemo. (he currently can't eat because a tumor blocks the passage to his stomach.) however, compliations arose as his gall bladder as infected so instead of the needed tubing he had to be fitted with they took his infected organ out.

last night my sister called me to tell me his kidneys are failing and his legs are swelling. i've been crying on n off since then. until last night i had the highest of hopes our friend would beat this, but now i'm not so sure. i will continue to give love, give hope, but ...

i'm scared for him, his family, my family. and i hate our medical insurance industry. profiteering corporate monkey's who will burn in hell for the care they've denied and disfigurations, anguish and deaths they could have prevented but didn't because they couldn't bleed money from it.
