I have preached very diligently that the cuts in funding
by Obamacare of 500 Billion Dollars from Medicare
can only be achieved in one manner: Denial of Care.
Up until now I did not have any specific person or case
to demonstrate that effect.
Now I have two:
1) The email I received from our friends wife. Ron (who is named
in the email below) had Multiple Myeloma treated with obliteration
of his bone marrow and a stem cell implant which has been 100%
successful to date. As mentioned in the email below he would have
been denied this treatment because of his age (he is 70) even though
he is a viable, mentally alert, active person.
2) Me. I would have been told that because I am over 70 years of
age there is no treatment available for me except Hospice.
Now, the problem is, only people who will know that they are
really being denied care are those who have some knowledge of the
Medical field. The rest of the population will just accept the premise
that there really is nothing that can be done for their life threating illness.
So, unless Obamacare is overturned, you can be assured that when
you reach a specific age you will be treated in a fashion which we
in the medical profession have labeled "benign neglect". Please
do read the email below and consider the ramification to you either
now or in the near future; whenever you reach the age of 62.
