Not to deny a cancer-sticken mother chemotherapy

How can a insurance company denied a cancer-stricken mother a chemotherapy regimen. About three months ago, Patsy Cowley was diagnosed with stage four Squamous cell rectal cancer. What is different about patsy than the majority of people receiving this diagnosis is that she just turned 30, and a mother of three young kids. This isn’t a unique story, but it’s important for me because Patsy Cowley is my very good friend. Forget for a moment the cruelty of denying a person cancer treatment when keeping a surplus of millions. Forget the fact that patsy’s age is a very positive indicator for survival. Simply consider the impact to Patsy’s family. Radiotherapy with concurrent chemotherapy is the standard of care for patients with squamous cell rectal cancer. Most patients treated with chemoradiotherapy have an excellent prognosis. Some studies have suggested that women have better prognosis than men. Why is it that the insurance companies are able to play God?  This is not a death sentence, people in jail would get better medical care! A good statement from Rhea Chancey in Tampa, Florida "Every one should have a fighting chance against cancer. The government should not be allowed to dictate who lives and who dies."
