I am writing this email to hopefully get some of you to start writing our President, congress, or anyone else that will listen. Please send this to anyone and everyone you can think of who might be willing to fight for something to be done.
I found out this morning that a 24 year old Jonesboro woman died yesterday from an INFECTED TOOTH! She had gone to the doctor, gotten anti-biotics and been sent home. She did not have insurance and did not have money, so she was not admitted to the hospital. Sometime yesterday, she began having trouble breathing, so her husband rushed her to the ER, they tried to do a trach on her, and when they opened her up, infection spread rapidly, going to her heart and killing her.
In this day of modern medicine, NO ONE, I REPEAT, NO ONE, should die from an infected tooth. IT IS TIME FOR ALL OF US TO GET FIGHTING MAD AND DEMAND SOMETHING FROM OUR HEALTH CARE SYSTEM!! THERE SHOULD BE FREE CLINICS IN EVERY TOWN, THERE SHOULD BE NO DIFFERENCE IN TREATMENT JUST BECAUSE YOU HAVE NO INSURANCE!
I have already written to Mr. Obama about this, I urge everyone and anyone to do the same and to contact every government official you can to tell them…….THIS IS UNEXCEPTABLE!!
We, as Americans should not have to live without proper medical and dental care!! Dominique Williams was only 24 years old! This could have happened to ANY OF US! It is time to start demanding better health care!
Please pass this on to anyone who might be willing to keep it circulating. Thank you.
