Except when it isn't. Then you must come to the US.
In 2009 Dan, then aged 22 was involved in a tragic cycling accident that left him paralysed from the chest down. Dan also suffered a stroke as he recovered in hospital, leaving him unable to use his right arm.
He then set out to raise the money in order to pay for the surgery. Over 4 years he managed to raise £22,000 from various fund raising activities and the operation was in sight.
Thanks to this overwhelming generosity, it wasn’t long before Brecon was flying to the US for an operation in Missouri.
This is really a heart felt story of a guy becoming paralyzed, raising money to get a cutting edge surgery, then donating it all to a kid so he could get the same surgery.
But goes back to the "US healthcare system sucks" mantra liberals berate us with. Sure, prices our out of control but sure as shit we have good healthcare.
