Texas Family With Two Children Suffering From Cancer Have Their Insurance Canceled

Heckuva job, Obama! You should really be proud of yourself.

A Gainesville family is fighting for their childrens’ lives.

Ronald and Krista Alford’s two children, Hunter and Mikayla, were born with extremely rare types of cancer.

Now, seven years into fighting that battle, they’ve been hit with a new one: their children’s insurance has been cancelled, affecting Hunter’s chemotherapy.

News 12’s Allison Harris brings us their story of struggle and strength.

Hunter Alford is due for his next round of chemo.

As of right now, his mom Krista says, he’s unlikely to get it.

“Since his insurance was dropped, we’re thinking about cancelling his chemotherapy,” Krista Alford said.

Liberals just don’t care that children die so long as they can shove ObamaCare down our throats. By any means necessary.

 The 7-year-old, who loves playing games on his iPad, is reportedly the youngest person to have his type of cancer.

Hunter has Plexiform Hishocyne Neoplasm.

The Alford’s are in a battle with children’s medicaid — or CHIP — Hunter’s insurance.

Krista says, despite receiving a new, renewed insurance card, the agency told her they dropped his insurance.

“I called them and they said we were dropped October 31st,” Krista said.

Krista says an insurance agent told her that Hunter’s information got lost when they made changes under the new Affordable Care Act.

Now, Krista is on a mission to re-gain that insurance, but they’re running out of time before his next chemo treatment, and the agent says they can’t expedite.

“The lady’s like, the only way we can expedite is if your son was pregnant and in labor, or if he was an illegal,” Krista said.

Despicable. Illegal aliens they’ll treat. Kids with cancer? Sorry, you’re out of luck, kids.

    Terrible to hear that this child’s insurance has been dropped. It is interesting, however, that you go on a rant about this happening due to the Affordable Care Act when republicans have done nothing to prevent insurance companies from canceling policies in the past. Where have you had your head buried? You and your ilk are part of the problem. By the way, I am a Republican.

    WTH did Hunter’s mom just say?!?

    “Since his insurance was dropped, we’re thinking about cancelling his chemotherapy,” Krista Alford said.

    WTH x2 ?!?
    UPDATE
    “First due to the public support and the overwhelming outcry the Hospital is going forward with the treatment of Hunter.”

    The “overwhelming outcry” undoubtedly was a result of his mom’s despicable statement that all but said, “Sorry, kid, you’re sh*t out of luck. No CHIP, No chemo.”

    Terrible to hear this child’s insurance has been dropped. It’s interesting, however, to hear a Democrat rail about insurance companies when they make the smallest profit margin of insurance companies (2.2%), which in turn make the smallest profit margin in all of HealthCare. It’s also interesting to note that now that ObamaCare is forcing insurers to drop quite literally MILLIONS of policies Democrats continue to back this disasters. Where are their asses buried that they can’t find their heads? You and your ilk are part of the problem. By the way, I am a Democrat.
