A Sad, Sad Story

I just want to draw your attention to a story told on the op-ed pages of the New York Times by Bob Herbert. It is about a woman without insurance who is diagnosed with cancer. Her story is a sad one – a sad, sad one (it deserves an extra sad, really). Her story raises several health care policy questions, but the one this writer is trying to expose – even further than countless others have done before – are the problems that the uninsured face. Give it a look.
