Esther's Assessment

Who I am

Inoperable cancer

I saw the surgeon

My son-in-law researched

Why not in Florida?

My pain

Doctors don't know

Why not in Florida?

Unfortunately, the kind of medical insurance I had, we had to pay out-of-pocket for my surgery. We had to pay out-of-pocket for the surgeon because I couldn't get the right coverage. And hey wouldn't cover me out of state. As big as Florida that you wouldn't have some wonderful kind of a doctor or a surgeon down there as you would in New York. Why New York? Why California? Why not Florida? Do you know what it is? I've come to the conclusion, and I don't care what anybody says, there are a lot of geriatrics down there and too many doctors say, "ah, they are going to go anyway." That's their attitude, because we are geriatrics. Well, hell, I'm not a geriatric, I'm very young and I just became--what did Amir say--I just became legal. I turned sixty five, he said, "are you finally legal?"
