Dear CAF… I’d like to request prayers for a young lady and her parents. The young lady is comatose, and in a facility… which is about to kick her out… because she is “living too long”.
A friend of mine, is a friend of her parents. And she called me… to ask if I knew of a Catholic or Christian Hospice care facility (Atlanta area). Sadly, I didn’t. I posted in the “Social Justice” forum hoping someone would know of one. But I got no replies. I didn’t have much luck with my own search, either. My friend is going to try calling the Chancery Office… hoping they can direct her. Our call was short and urgent… so I didn’t get the poor young lady’s name.
But I’m just so upset… to know that this sort of brutality is being practiced in “health care”. What are these poor parents supposed to do with their comatose daughter? She obviously needs specialized care. But the facility won’t continue… because she is “living too long” (i.e., the INSURANCE COMPANY won’t continue to pay them :mad: ). When my friend told me this, I about vomited. I was so disgusted… saddened and angered by it. The more I think about it… the angrier I become.
Please pray for this poor family. Thank you and God bless.
