I had kids at 25 and 27 and was doing pretty well. Then my husband got cancer and it wiped out all our savings on treatment and shit. Lost my home, car, and good credit and then he died. Had to file bankruptcy. I found a decent paying job after he died but I worked almost every night and every weekend and hardly saw them for the past 3 years. Shit sucks. You can work your ass off making someone else rich, and basically, daycare and public school raise your children. What the fuck are we doing.
How are people defending a medical system that bankrupts a young family due to cancer? How is there not an uproar against this broken system? I’m sorry I don’t want to upset anyone. I just want people to know it can and does happen. I don’t know why there isn’t more of an uproar. I think people are just defeated. It did radicalize me, and I’m doing what I can to organize people and try and push for reforms. Your story almost made me cry. Nobody should have to go through that.
