I enjoy complaining and generally feeling sorry for myself, and frankly I'm sick of kids like this upstaging me. Thanks, kid with horrifying tumor, for making all my whining and self pity seem completely invalid.

check that, confusing wording and half way down the page it changes from " benign lesions" to "vascular tumors".

That tumour isn't so much on his neck as it is on his shoulder.

I've seen plenty of graphic images (I watched gallstone surgery being performed on my own brother, watched a number of surgeries performed on me [note: I watched video of it years later], observed babies being born naturally and by C-section), and this? This is nothing. I was more disturbed by watching a bone graft being secured in the hole of my palate and the reconstructive surgery on my cleft lip.

So, I suppose if an adult had a tumor on his Johnson the treatment would be rendered useless.

Another stumbling block for Jose's family has been the cost. The treatment and surgery to remove the growth will cost a staggering £125,000 ($200,000).
And then there's the cost of the medication - £1,250 ($2,000) per week, which Jose has needed to be prescribed for several months


Why is it acceptable that the health of a child be tied to his parents' financial means ?

You know, criticizing Québec is sop for Fark, but this is a case where our provincial government is doing things right. Like every Canadian, we have universal medicare, so the cost of the surgery is covered. Additionally, every Québec resident also has coverage for prescription medication, either through private group insurance or, if ineligible for private insurance, through a government-run public insurance. Either way, you will be covered. If on the public plan, your yearly premium will be from a minimum of $0 to a maximum of $600, based on your revenue.

You are conveniently forgetting to mention that all of these wonderful benefits are paid for through substantially higher taxes. I am all for universal, socialized healthcare but you will *never* convince Americans that they should pay higher taxes so that everyone can get healthcare. That is simply not the American way. It will never happen. It should, but it won't.

Missionary work it looks like.  They go into the border areas a lot to religious work or if big enough sponsor other projects to help Mexico's poor. Most likely they either saw him or a friend or family member got their attention.

So the door-to-door salesman shows up at Little Johnny's house.

After ringing the doorbell several times, Little Johnny opens the door.

He's wearing a bathrobe, and the bottle of Viagra is visible in the pocket.

Little Johnny is wearing Little Susie's panties on his head, a bottle of 12 year old scotch in one hand, and a cigar in the other.

"Whaddya want, mister?", Little Johnny sneered to the salesman.

"Are your parents home, little boy?", the shocked salesman replied.

"Does it LOOK like my parents are home?"

Oh it still is. It's really good at treating Pulmatory hypertension. Problem is that when given to a two year old it has the same effect.

A Canadian friend mentioned that, in the US taxes are kind of high considering that unlike Canada, you get jack diddly in return for your money. He thinks Americans are conditioned to expect nothing. In short the wealthy and the pols in Washington do not want the public to demand anything in return for their taxes.

My admittedly akwardly stated point was that where health care is not available to all, children will suffer. Under the Canadian system this poor boy's condition would not have reached the point it's at today.  Additionally, under Québec's prescription insurance system he would have received his necessary prescriptions courtesy of his fellow citizens.

That a child is allowed to suffer because his parents can't afford the surgery and the prescriptions is unconscionable. That some would defend a system that allows this to happen is beyond the pall.

Not forgetting anything. Health care is expensive and in Québec we pay a heck of a lot of taxes, something of which we all complain, but at least we feel that we get something in return. Unquestionably our health care system could do with a number of improvements, but almost no one complains of the philosophy behind it.

FTFY

People beat their chests about the sanctity of life while it's growing inside a woman's ladyparts, but once you pop out of the oven, that's it. Your health becomes tied to your financial means. People with more money get better treatment. Healthcare should be a right, not a privilege, and it should be universal.

Were you too busy rushing to respond that you failed to notice that I never singled-out the US ? I mean, if the shoe fits... but my comment was meant to apply equally to all countries that do not provide tax-funded healthcare to their citizens.

as for Jument's comment, it stands on its own merits.
