Hard-working, loving Gina is faced with breast cancer and limited insurance.

I’m sending this email as a cry for help, not for me, but for my beautiful, brave cousin. As many of you may know, my cousin Gina was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and we have learned that her case is extremely aggressive, requiring immediate action, the first being a double mastectomy that is schedule for this next Tuesday.

Gina is self-employed, her husband was laid off, and they have minimal health insurance. Without going into full detail, we learned yesterday that her insurance, while not being that good, is really that bad. She received a call informing her that most of her procedure on Tuesday will not be covered, therefore needs to supplement the hospital for her scheduled care prior to the surgery. This is only going to be the start of what they will not cover. Gina still needs to go through chemo and radiation for her best hope to make a full recovery.
