Dear Mr. Prime Minister,
It is with great distress that I write the letter.
I congratulate the honorable prime minister and his team on their win at the polls. As I watch Mr. Davis give his speech, I was impressed with his humility, compassion, and empathy for others, especially the most vulnerable.
I have never met Mr. Davis, but I have often heard people speak of him, and they always say he is a nice man, he helps people and he is a compassionate man.
I hope then that you can assist me and those affected and move and rectify our plight swiftly.
I am a cancer patient. I have been attending the PMH Oncology Clinic for a while now. I have stage four cancer. There isn’t much the doctors can do as there is no cure for my situation, but I am thankful that they are doing the best they can to extend the time I have left for as long as they can.
My problem is that I am unemployed. I must get my chemo regularly. It is the only thing except for God that is keeping me alive.
I don’t have a problem paying my bill. God knows I wish my circumstances were different because it is rather embarrassing when you go to get treatment and are refused because you do not have the funds to pay.
I have seen many patients stop coming because of this, even though they know that cancer will only continue to spread without treatment, but they are left without a choice.
What can you do when you do not have the funds to pay?
Mr. Prime Minister, I am writing you to have you investigate this situation and rectify it as soon as possible. You said that you are here to look out for the poor and middle class.
Well, this is one area we need you now. Please come to our rescue.
