This family wasn't wealthy at all, just middle class. The reason this story got any media coverage at all is because a BLONDE CHEERLEADER died as a result of BREAST IMPLANT SURGERY. Don't you see? That's what sells newspapers and attracts TV viewers. White, blonde, young women doing things that could be considered to be outside the mainstream of middle-American society. That's all it amounts to: the media used the story of this girls death to sell advertising. It's as simple as that.While I am deeply saddened for the Kuleba family for their loss, I am a little taken back at all the attention that this has received. My oldest daughter died two years ago, 7 days after her 18th birthday during the surgery o have implants. She died of the same thing that Ms. Kuleba passed from. But the difference is, I am from Ohio and middle class, she is from Boca Raton, FL, millionairres galore. I guess it is a bigger deal when a rich kid passes. Yes I am bitter, this has brought back awaful memories from 6/11/06. Sorry.
I'm sorry for your loss. I can't even imagine what it is like to lose a child and I'm so sorry that your daughter is no longer with you.
