Ours is the greatest health care system in the world? Car Washes, Bake Sales and Basketball Game fund Raisers.

The recent passing of a 12 year old boy from aggressive central nervous system tumors is a horrific and tragic story. As a father of a 12 year old boy, who just recently had a bout with pneumonia and a fractured arm (thank you Badgercare), there is nothing worse than seeing your own child suffer. So I’m writing this not for any hyperbolic reason, but to make a point about “the greatest healthcare system in the world.” This was a line in the story…
A basketball tournament fundraiser to help ***** family with medical expenses has been planned for Aug. 7.

This is our health care system, where each bill is a heartbreaking reminder of our personal loss? I hope someday we will never have to read about another fundraiser again.
