I think I'll give that vid a miss.

It was sad because she needed open heart surgery to survive but needed dental work before they could operate. Her insurance for healthcare (or whatever they call it) didn't cover that (dental) so she couldn't afford to have it done, hence no operation. She did the vid to try to raise funds, sadly 2 months later (or less) she passed away, leaving two very small kids.

Poignantly, she looks optimistic on the vid that she will raise the money and survive....

:(

Yes Anne, I watched it. She did get choaked up a few times the poor girl. How crazy is it though that all she needed was dental surgery and she only raised 400$ or there abouts. Sad.

I know.

We may moan about the NHS but at least if you are on a low income or ill you get free dental treatment. This should never have happened, it's a disgrace.

Funny thing you know.... I havee always said that should that sort of thing ever to me I would sell EVERYTHING I had to ensure my health was the best I could make it. EVERYTHING.
