INsurance...YES! 3 of them. I will tell you nothing that I cannot substantiate. Some of it very unbelievable. UP until...2 years ago ,prior to Medicare <that's when I turned old enough to get it> Lori and I were Paying..9000$ a QUARTER...right!! 36000$ a year from United health.. for our policy for 2 people. I complained everywhere about it...including Florida Insurance Commish! big deal! This of coursse...did entirely for my care.!!! Example... I have had for last 5 years not much of an IMMUNE system remaining... SO.. every 4 weeks..I need a manmade one...Cost.. now 12,500$ PER month. this is totally in addition to my Leukemia CAre, or the care for the...side effects of some of the MEds used on me. Today I have...Medicare.. AARP PLan J <the best> and MAYO Employeee <Lori works in the laboratory there now. HOWEVER....these STILL do NOT cover totally my Healthcare costs....whcha last year exceeded 400 000$!!!CHOKE

One of those things that comes up at work a lot - cancer is the leading cause of medical bankruptcy in the US.

Bob, I hope you're on that recovery path. Best wishes from the northern areas!

Wow instead of worrying about giving everybody free healthcare our government should have some major healthcare reform that is insane. I hope everything is getting better for you and you will always have our support here!

Hi Bob,

First I just want to thank you for giving so many of us the gift of paintball.

I'm sorry, frustrated, angry at how our medical system is right now and can only pray for change. I was diagnosed with Hodgkin's a last year and I thank God every day for the work my dad has put into talking to as many people as he has just to get me treatment. It seems I'm lucky to qualify as indigent, as that got most of my costs covered from Shands UF's amazing kindness, and we just put off all the rest.

I already relapsed and, while living in Jacksonville with my parents (I'm 25) I still travel down to Gainesville to get treatment there. God has really helped provide for my family in a really big way as now that I relapsed I qualify for Medicaid, without which it seems I would be one dead duck. I think the past year of treatment to get my first relapse cost $750,000 and by the time I'm done with stem cell transplant it'll be another $1,000,000. Praise God for all those years of financial difficulty because without them I wouldn't be able to get treatment.

I'm sorry if I'm OT here, I just got released from the hospital sunday and I'm not thinking too clearly. But I hate to see you be put in such financial troubles. I'm also surprised to hear that you live in Jacksonville too! I hope when we both have an immune system in the future I could drop off a tasty baked good to warm you up =)

My prayers are with you. Thanks again.

ps - do you have a paypal account that I might be able to donate to in order to help? Maybe God will send me some winning lotto tickets =)

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
