Be the squeaky wheel

No, I didn't have any personal problems with the insurance. I think I was very fortunate. You have to do what you have to do. You know, its like the squeaky wheel gets the oil. You stand up and you insist on what you believe. I think that they're going to go ahead and pay for any additional treatment. It might not come easy, it might mean that you have to talk to your doctor, that you have to write letters to the company, that you have to contact the insurance bureau in Lansing, but how can somebody tell you that we've already done a lumpectomy and we're not going to pay for another mastectomy. No.
