Susannah got the ball rolling with her post, over the next 24 hours we were both inundated with messages, shares and likes. I think my cell phone was beginning to overheat!!
We have no idea of the total contacts we received but we surely had over 200 shares, hundreds of likes and messages of compassion. We did not receive a single negative comment. The battle goes on. Susannah’s post is attached
My father needs a chemo treatment for a rare blood disease. If he had cancer it would be covered. But he doesn’t. Hence it is not covered. The government will not provide the treatment to save his life. Please share. Help us get him the treatment he needs to survive since his government feels his life is not worth saving.
Letter to the Editor —-Health Treatment Denied
Posted on January 24, 2018
Department refuse treatment for life threatening disease. It was not surprising to read the latest poll that puts the Green Party in the lead with 37% , PC s are second and the governing liberals a distance third. My own recent experience in dealing with the government clearly shows why they are so unpopular. I have a life threatening disease (primary autoimmune hemolytic anemia)there is no known cause and no cure. I have only one possible chance of remission by receiving four treatments of chemotherapy , approx cost $17000 . However health dept denied providing this treatment. This is the same government that hands out generous severance packages to politicians fleeing from scandals, they waste millions on Geo Sweep, E gaming.roundabouts, big payouts for scrub land owned by cronies and the list goes on. But hey, we can’t provide you health care because your disease is not cancer and we only provide chemo for cancer.this would be against policy. In other words stop pestering us and go home and die. This is the government that over and over again claims they are here for islanders. I leave you to judge.
God Bless and keep reading
