I want to thank Joe Madison you for all the support, knowledge, he gives his audience every
morning and more specifically on Obamacare because right now my medical record reads:
“A 65 year old male diagnosed with early stage colon cancer”
I was scheduled Thursday 12/22/2016 for Surgery for removal of a cancerous polyp which was found in my large Intestine(Cecum). The discovery of the Colon cancer came after my eye doctor found bleeding in the retina and sent me to a retina specialist. It was then determined the severe retinal bleeding was related to a systemic condition.
The retina Doctor sent me for a blood test, my hemoglobin came back 6.5 (normal male is 15-16). I had severe anemia and was immediately sent to the ER for a blood transfusion ( it had dropped further to 5.8). The physicians determined I had some type of internal bleeding.
I was admitted, given an endoscopy and colonoscopy exam where a large 3cm mass was found in my ascending colon. The mass was biopsy, 10 days later it returned dysplasia, positive for early stage cancer. Mr. President, other than feeling extremely tired on occasions, I had no other symptoms such rectal bleeding, bloody stools, nothing.
PREVENTATIVE CANCER SCREENINGS
(WHERE IS TRUMP CARE???)
Mr. Obama, had it not been for the required cancer screenings under Obamacare with Medicare, I would have likely been sent home. Sir, further had it not been for Obamacare, I nor my wife could ever get insurance because the both of us have pre-existing conditions.
My high blood pressure, my diabetes eliminated me from all pre-obamacare health insurances and when my wife was disabled on her job (2008) we went without healthcare insurance for nearly 7 years until Obamacare was approved. The both of us signed up together on the first day of eligibility for Michigan Blue Cross Blue Shield.
Prior to Obamacare when we tried to get coverage BC/BS in Michigan and or Florida they wanted $8000.00 per month and excluded any an all conditions related to the pre-existing conditions. Another words NO CARE ((TRUMP CARE???).
Our situation is even more complicated because I own a small business in
Florida and my wife lives in Michigan and because the Governor of Florida and the legislature are so resistant to healthcare the programs here(Florida) are pitiful.
Mr. President, I know Obamacare works and so did his economic prosperity plan. My little Pharmacy (pronto pharmacy LLC) has held its own for nearly 7 years all under
I KNOW OBAMACARE WORKSWHERE IS TRUMPCARE???
President Obama. I know Obamacare works because I appeared on Joe Madison forum in DC at Sirius XM Studio when Kathryn Sybillis was HHS Secretary and I spoke to you about the difficulties I had at the time seeking care with and enlarged prostate an a elevated PSA. Fortunately for me after nearly $5000.00 dollars out of pocket expense (which included a biopsy) I had no evidence of prostate cancer.
THANK YOU JOE MADISON FOR YOU SUPPORT ON OBAMACARE
Oh what a difference Obamacare has made, I called your show from my hospital bed the day after I was admitted to Henry Ford Hospital, Detroit Michigan (at that time GI screening were just scheduled) and we spoke about the benefits and the importance of Obamacare and you, your wife and staff wish me the best.
I frequently call your show, over the past decades on all types of issues and I been a guest on your show when you were with WXYT in Detroit and was a guest on WOL in the early 1990’s discussing (The Toothgate Scandal) Medicaid dental system of healthcare racism on minority healthcare provider.
What we did about it, Mr. Madison lead to a Congressional Investigate (OTA Children’s Dental Services Under Medicaid) this couldn’t have been done without your help, Barbara Reynolds, CT Vivian, Julian Bond (America Black Forum) and others.
