Quotes

...will come as millions of patients and their families are caught by the unprecedented and largely unpublicized denial of coverage," McEniry said. "We simply can't sit back and allow insurance companies to dictate physician decisions regarding the best course of treatment for their patients. We must act now."
...Christie said, "Many of us with this incurable condition have tried heavy doses of narcotic pain killers that can have serious side effects and may give mixed results. Over-the-counter medications are mostly good for muscle aches, but did little to address my inflammation and pain. My doctor recently prescribed a new compounded ointment that stops the pain in minutes. It's simply wrong for insurers to take away coverage for such essential medications."
"So we're trying to get him through this emotionally, and within three days he was just like, 'I got to get healthy, get to surgery and do Lift For Life,' because he knows his situation is going to be a little tenuous for this year" Galt said
It's all part of a more all-encompassing goal, to "increase awareness" to kidney cancer as a "year-round thing. This problem doesn't go away after Arts Fest weekend" Kline said. "We're trying to make the fight year-round, as well."
