    It’s no tragedy. Sometimes people need help unexpectedly. It’s a wonderful way to support those for whom you care.

    This, OTOH...



    ...well, yeah. o_O:D

    People shouldn't have to rely on the charity of strangers to not end up in dire financial straits because of a medical emergency. That doesn't make me any less willing to donate, I just wish it was the case that we lived in a world where Sammy didn't need to ask.

    I'm glad we live in a world when a complete stranger can reach out in a community like ours and get an enthusiastic response.I don't look at it as if life "should be" or "shouldn't be". There is only life. You live it and respond within your own moral paradigm as the clock ticks down to the great unknown.

    OK! MY campaign appears on two sites including this one (you can guess which one the other is) and I emailed a very small number of friends. PATSFANS are kicking butt!!!

    I don’t know much about this... is there a penalty if you don’t hit your goal? What happens? Anything? Sorry for my boomer ignorance. :D

    Looks like you’ve just passed your goal recently so you don’t need to worry about that :)

    We'll have differing opinions on this all day across the hundreds of posters here. I'm going with "both."

    On the one hand, anything which brings out generosity is a good thing. It provides warm and fuzzies, and contributes to a better society as well.

    Plus, of the 35,000,000,000 people who have lived since civilization began, Sammy's in an elite place in terms of health care and material well being. He's having a serious disease treated, and has a good likelihood of coming out of it healthy, and will have food and shelter in the process.

    On the other hand, with literally hundreds of thousands of Americans declaring bankruptcy annually due to medical costs, most of them with employer sponsored plans, we shouldn't let our personal experience here create a myopic conclusion that Sammy's experience here is the norm. A tiny portion of those folks get resolution to their issue through charity and goodwill, and most will experience a severe drop in health care quality as a result. We've got a systemic problem we need to fix, also highlights that we have a problem with our ability to fix problems.

    OK, that's one view.
    Bankruptcy is an insanely difficult and wasteful process. I'd rather not design health care with it as a core element. It sets people's lives back permanently, and not everyone has access to it.
