The Koch brothers are spending $6million on a new anti-Obama ad; an ad featuring a Canadian woman from Ontario.
Shona Holmes claims our medicare system blocked her from getting the immediate treatment she needed to prevent her from dying from a brain tumour. She mortgaged her home to buy life saving treatment at a Mayo Clinic in the US.
Except she never had a brain tumour. She had a benign cyst on her pituitary gland. Very serious, but not life threatening and treatable in the time period planned in Ontario.
I completely get the fear one goes through when you get told you have a tumour on or near the brain. I do have a brain tumour and have come close to dying more than once.
