This is what I’m talking about people!
Brain tumor hits and your insurance won’t cover the treatments you need in order to live? Speak up or die trying! Fight like hell. Force their hand if you have to.
Dawn Smith is doing just that. Through the power of her voice, she was able to exert enough pressure on CIGNA, her health insurance provider, to get some of the tests + treatments she needed to to live with her brain tumor. Dawn’s a smart cookie though. She knows change doesn’t come easily, so she’s headed to Pittsburgh to have a candid conversation + make a lasting impression on CIGNA.
Tomorrow, Dawn arrives at CIGNA headquarters, where she’ll attempt to meet with CEO Edward Hanway to discuss the intense pain and suffering that is fostered by their broken system—pain and suffering she has experienced first hand, despite being a model customer of CIGNA. She’s also bringing with her hundreds of messages of support from her fellow Americans in prescription pill bottles. Talk about a making an impression.
It’s a bold, gutsy move. And it’s exactly the kind of action we need in America. But I’ve yakked on long enough. You need to hear Dawn’s voice, not mine.
