    Why don’t these people take care of their own medical expenses?

      Your a moron. I know when my son broke his arm and had to have emergency surgery one night in the hospital and a set of pins in it. It’s cost me so far 10,000 and its still growing what flippin average family can afford what they r going through. I have read many of your negative comments and not said anything at all until now. U must live on miserable flippin life if all u can do is be negative if that how your going to be just shut the * UP.

        You should invest a little time in acquiring some skills in English as you strike me as a complete moron.

    He is probably racking up at least five k a day. Who can afford that? Hence the need for help with medical expenses. Grow a heart!

      Is there a compelling reason for why these people deserve my sympathy? From what I’ve read, it was the skateboarder’s fault. In addition, they should take some personal responsibility and take care of their own business.

    @murat, I hope you stay healthy so you never have to know what its like to have a huge amount of medical debt. If I were an ass like you, I would wish sickness upon you but im not so stay healthy and heartless!

      I am a member of the privileged elite and have access to state of the art nutrition and physiological maintenance systems and techniques. In the rare case that something goes wrong, I am fortunate to be in the circle of the finest medical practitioners in the world. So I am fortunate in that I don’t have to face the common obstacles and drudgery that is all too common for peasants.

        Ok, Ok, I have been reading and wondering for several weeks as to the seriousness and validity of your many comments. But I’m calling B.S. on this one. I don’t think you are even being remotely honest with this latest comment. Hey, I could be wrong. Just calling it as I see it.
