    this is true. However the article points out many people who are alive, raising families and working who are in a gigantic hole because they got sick.
    We have seen people who have done everything “right” according to social rules. Got up every day and went to work. Lived modestly. Followed to rules and had breast or pancreatic cancer and boom, had to rely on the kindness and generosity of others to survive. Or lose everything. Do they not deserve a helping hand from those who lucked out by not falling victim to indiscriminate medical problems?
    Any one of us tomorrow could find a lump, get an infection, have a stroke or heart attack and so on, even as fairly young people.
    In an era of $1000 insulin, tens of thousands of dollars surgeries, facility fees and so on, economic disaster could be closer for many than they thought possible. Many insulin users are born that way.

    I don’t have a problem with medical bill charity or “helping hands “as you say.
