Been having a look see at a couple of USA lung disease sites. They were filled with questions like - I can't afford oxygen anyone got any ideas?. And how much is the cost of............. There was one story of an elderly couple who lived in Canada where they got free health care. But every year they insisted on visiting Florida for 3 months. Because of their health they couldn't get travel insurance and their daughter was terrified that they would become ill in Florida and it wipe out their life savings. She was trying to persuade them not to go but her dad loved his tropical sunshine and is insisting.
Isn't it awful to have to worry about health costs like that. Thank God for the NHS - It isn't perfect but at least it's there!
