mrbrown tweeted a blog link today:

http://acleanbreast.wordpress.com/2010/08/26/sht-theres-a-hole-in-my-coverage-make-that-a-manhole/

Snippet:
"Yesterday I received a letter from Prudential, with whom I spend nearly $1,000 every month, telling me that I don’t have cancer. Yep, you read it right. Apparently, according to the experts at Prudential, I lost a breast and went through a 12 hour surgery for… not cancer!"

Every female with life insurance should read the blog post. The author of the blog can't claim any money she spent on hospital fees to remove her entire breast. Because, apparently, Stage 0 cancer (Carcinomas in-situ) is not cancer. At least, not in the eyes of the insurance company. Yes, they have eyes, but no heart.

So what, we're supposed to wait for our Stage 0 cancers to develop into a more life-threatening form in order to be able to take care of the situation, purposely embracing/nurturing/developing the very thing we're trying to avoid? Isn't medical coverage for major health issues like cancer the reason why we buy life insurance in the first place?

"Please please please, I beg you, don’t get royally scr*wed like me. Make sure your critical illness plan actually covers you..." "Call your insurance agent or financial planner today and make sure, by hook or by crook, you are covered by some rider, anything, for early stage cancers."


Tell everyone.

I’ve been sneaking out for lunch alone time and I love it. To sit in a cafe with the papers and a coffee for an hour. Makes everything a little bit more bearable and escapable, but it’s not right, is it? To hole oneself up like that?

Finding it really hard to concentrate on work today. I'm too caught up fighting demons that may very well be out of my control. A boy my age is on death row, his pleas of leniency repeatedly ignored, and I am touching up terms and conditions for a lottery ticket. 

Read the heartbreaking of how Vui Kong's family and supporters and submitted their petition of 109,346 signatures here:

Who are we to play God? Death should never be subjected to the decision of the State. Who's to say who lives and who dies?

Yes, the death penalty may very well be the best, most effective form of deterrence, but is it right?

We're dealing with an invaluable life here. not an unwilling weapon of fear, not a lesson for others, and most of all, not a statistic.
