Kalena Hudon, a Canadian struck with cancer, admits herself into a Pittsburgh hospital specializing in surgery of the kind that's needed for her particular brand of cancer. If Obama gets his way with the new healthcare bill, Canadians will have to travel far, far away to get the kind of treatment that we cannot get in Canada and very soon might not get in the USA.
I bet Brazil and India will be happy when Obama gets his way with the healthcare, because those countries are where Americans and Canadians will be forced to go for surgeries that cannot wait for months on end.
......Doctors first discovered a cancerous mole on the Winnipeg, Manitoba, native's arm a few years ago.
There were no further complications until two months after her daughter was born, when doctors found it had spread to Hudon's lymph nodes, stomach, lungs, chest, arms and neck.
"It showed that I had tumors all over and the cancer was in all my lymph nodes and that I was at stage four. There was nothing they could do. They couldn't do surgery. It had spread too much," said Hudon.
Hudon said the only procedure that may help in her fight was pioneered at the Hillman Cancer Center in Shadyside and is not offered in Canada......
