My Health-Care Story: Well Served by the System
By Hannah Boyle
President Obama tells lots of frightening medical stories, but many people can testify to being well served by the system. In the 18 months our daughter battled cancer, my husband and I never had to call our insurer, though it paid out tens of thousands of dollars in claims. In 2008, when it became necessary to accept that medical science could offer her no more, our end-of-life discussions occurred only with the doctors and nurses who had proven their dedication to healing her.
All Americans deserve such care, but it won’t come by way of the legislation offered so far.
