Did you hear Tiger woods cheated on his wife?

I bet you did. Did you see a photo like this:

Along with an article where someone talks shit on him, or his wife, or the other women?

I know you did.

How? Because it’s everywhere. Why is it everywhere? Because they want you dumb. They want you to think about this and a whole host of other dumb shit while they carry out their agenda quietly and unchallenged .

I’ll talk about who “They” are later because of this pressing issue.

Eduardo.

A 14 year old boy who is dying because he doesn’t have health care.

Teenager denied lifesaving transplant in US: National appeal to save Eduardo’s life.

While heath care reform dominates the national debate, there is a 14 year-old boy in Kansas City, Kansas named Eduardo Loredo who could die any day.

Eduardo is being denied a heart transplant because he does not have health insurance (or enough money) to pay for a heart transplant and follow up care.

Eduardo was diagnosed with Cardiomyopathy, a serious disease in which the heart muscle becomes inflamed and eventually stops working altogether, and was hospitalized at Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, MO beginning in July 2009.

Eduardo was sent home from Children’s Mercy Hospital on October 14, 2009 and told that he had the potential to live another two or three years, but that he could also die any day.

Missouri’s Medicaid program is generally available only to citizens and certain legal immigrants who meet a five year waiting period. These restrictive rules prevent Eduardo from qualifying for health insurance that would cover both the transplant procedure and the long-term follow up care required to ensure a successful transplant.

Without this coverage, the total cost of the transplant would cost his family $500,000.

Children’s Mercy Hospital told Eduardo that without an up-front payment of $100,000, he would not even be able to get on the waiting list for a heart transplant.

While Children’s Hospital in St. Louis, MO originally offered to perform the transplant surgery for no cost, this offer was later retracted. His family is simply being told that his life is not a priority.

    This just breaks my heart…..bet if he was a pretty little blond girl he’d get the help he DESERVES.

    My prayers are with him….I wish I could give more than that.

    This story so reminds me of Babo in “Explicit Ills” I pray his story has a happier ending

    After reading the comments: http://www.kmbc.com/news/21926881/detail.html I am disgusted to know there are people in this world who think it is perfectly acceptable to deny a 14 year old boy (or anyone of any age) the ability to live simply because he was not fortunate enough to be born here.
