Is that still the name of the team………Shannon?

For those that don’t know…….Shannon and Ron Navito (sp?) put on an awesome dinner spread to do a little fundraiser for the “Breast Cancer 3 – day walk” Friday night

Great cause….

Great food…..

Great “peep’s”…..(people)

It was good to see allot of friends hanging out and having a good time.  Because of my work schedule, I don’t get a chance to get out and do these things like I used to.

Thank you Shannon for being such a great friend to Julie.  And thanks for just being a damn good person………always there to help others out.  I’ll talk to Ron about “cloning” you as well.

 

While I was at the fundraiser…….I got into this great discussion about “Health Care Reform” with Brenda Heflin.  She described the struggle she had with Health Insurance and the run-a-round she got when it came to critical care for a loved one.

What is this world coming too!!!!!!!…………..

Where the hell are we going!!!!!!!!……………..

When you have a loved one that is that sick and you have to battle insurance that hard for coverage that should be a “No – Brainer”.  I know I’m being vague…….but only as respect to those involved in conversation.

Basically………health care,.. in this country,.. is broken……and if we continue on this path………even the wealthiest among us will struggle with getting the proper care that they need when that time comes.

Just like this Stem Cell procedure……..

It’s a three way pie……#1 is the drug companies……#2 is insurance……and #3 is the FDA.

Drug companies want Stem Cell to be a prescription.

Insurance wants Stem cell to be a hospital procedure.

And the FDA will have to sort it out.

In the meantime……..you’re sick……..and there is only enough “coolwhip” (money) for one piece of pie.  Do you have time to wait for the pie to be served?

Or do you take your “coolwhip” over seas before it melts?

Some of us don’t have time to see who will profit the most. 

And health insurance companies……..SHAME ON YOU!!!!!!…………how do you put a dollar sign on somebodies time in this world.  Sleep well MR./MRS. adjuster.

Be well

Todd
