It's not just breast cancer. I have a friend who has Medicare A and B, but not C. The hospital wanted to know how he would pay the balance, and when he said he would have to work out a payment plan with them, they "delayed" his much-needed surgery. He switched to a nonprofit hospital and got the surgery he needed.

No. You come into an area where important thing are being talked about so you can act like a jerk. I hate to tell you, but your "likes" don't make you special in any way. You're like a flasher with a small wiener except that you're flashing what little there is of your brain.
