    I can't get this information out of my head. Maybe because TC and thyroid cancer have not only affected our health, our outlook and our thoughts forever, it has also affected our financial status.

      Thanks for posting the article. I am not very happy with our health insurance system and I think the European models are better because they offer a more equal access to health care. In Europe poor people won't go bankrupt when they have to go through expenisve treatment like chemotherapy or the like. In the US bankruptcy it's nearly inevitable, it's just too much if you don't have a good private insurance.
