A dear friend of mine and a Realtor® in my office Diana Mourssali, was recently told that her breast cancer has metastasized again to her liver and is now throughout her body. She has already had a radical mastectomy and has also had 40% of her liver removed.
Diana's oncologist has said that her only hope is a procedure of transcatheter occlusion and radiopharmaceutical therapy (radioactive beads place directly into her liver). Diana’s insurance company has denied the treatment stating that it is experimental and investigational. This treatment is approved for liver cancer.
According to Diana's insurance company, she has breast cancer in the liver since it started in her breast. This procedure is not an approved treatment for breast cancer and has refused to pay for this procedure. Obviously this is just semantics, cancer is cancer.
Diana's oncologist is appealing the insurance denial and is asking that she produce letters from everyone she knows to support her effort to live.
Would you please write a letter to the insurance company on Diana's behalf, requesting that her insurance company reconsider their decision to withhold this treatment? All letters should be sent directly to Diana at the address below. She will present all of the letters to her doctor with his appeal request.
I plead with each one of you to please write this letter, forward this blog, pray for Diana and reblog this blog post.
