cuts to cancer care = death by sequestration

Dear Federal Government,

Now you got my Irish up and I’ve got something to say. What the hell are you thinking rushing to exempt meat inspectors and air traffic controllers from sequestration?

Do you care more about short term annoyances or the death by sequestration of US citizens with cancer?

Arriving at my oncologist’s office this morning in a state of high anxiety I became even more off the charts after reading this!

Please ask your Congressman to:

·      Please co-sponsor H.R. 1416, the Cancer Patient Protection Act of 2013, which instructs HHS/CMS to stop the sequester cuts to cancer drugs and other Part B drugs.

·      Please support preventing the 3% cut to Medicare in the President’s Budget.

What kind of a country balances it's budget by killing off senior and /or Medicare approved citizens fighting to survive?

  1. And worse is yet to come Patrick. You could try and tell people until you were blue in the face how terrible this new health care bill was but no one would listen, and now we are stuck with it. welcome to the worse health care this country has ever seen. Cancer treatment is just one of the area's cut. All treatment will be affected.
