    If you know me on Facebook, send me a PM there to get my address. If not, send me a PM here.

    I am going to collect money for menageriekeeper, our sister in Christ who lost her husband to injuries sustained in a motorcycle crash. She is now
    a single Mother, and rather than send flowers, I think a card with cash
    is our best way of showing that we love her and care about her loss.

    Thanks
    Debbie Mc

    (I am trustworthy, having worked in law enforcement for 25 years,
    and besides that, I am a born again Christian and that should
    be a good resume)

    Without question, as crass as it might seem, money is the best thing we can do in this case. She's going to have so many expenses and things to deal with and if we can at least ease the money stress, it will be a good thing.

    Don't I know exactly what annsni is talking about!!!

    Right before I turned 65 (5/9/2011), I called up the Medicare people & told them I wanted to sign up for Medicare Parts A & B. The Medicare person asked if I had medical insurance coverage through my employer (in this case, AT&T). "Yes" at that specific time I did. Ergo, all Medicare gave me was Part A (Hosp ONLY).....No part B (because I was told by BC/BS of IL, "Yes, you [as a current employee of AT&T] ARE covered. No problemo senor! Have a nice day & thanks for being a 'valued customer of BC/BS of IL.'"

    What BC/BS of IL DIDN'T tell me [& here again, it was probably MY fault for not asking] was that any & all "Part B-type of coverage" for RETIRED AT&T employees would cease & desist midnight 12/13/2011...End of discussion!

    SO, fat [not really]-DUMB-and-Happy Me RETIRES 6/18/2011 has a stroke in late Oct 2011.

    NO PROBLEMO...."Ole #1 here" IS covered to the hilt by BC/BS of IL!!!!!! WRONG!!!

    Fast forward to end of Mar 2012, my family doctor tells me my PSA levels are higher than he'd like them to be & refers me to a urologist to be further evaluated w/a procedure to detect whether or not I've got prostate cancer or not.

    PTL, it's NOT cancer!! I just have an enlarged prostate, & so long as I watch my diet, exercise, etc., the only thing I'll experience is "having to go" more often. Little did they tell me that this procedure + any/all attending dr. bills would not be covered by Part A!

    I'm NOT wanting to start a pity party for Bro ktn4eg. I am 100% to blame for not getting the fine details of my health insurance coverage down pat. God WILL take care of me! Of that I can be sure!

    OTOH, having to face at a minimum $6k - $8k medical bills is not how I planned to spend my retirement time(s).

    Long story short, I BEG YOU, if any of you in the BB family (or anyone else for that matter), for your own & your family's sake, please don't make the mistake I did. Check w/your company's health insurance BEFORE you plan to retire!!!

    I have had several ask for my address, and I am hoping more will do this.

    I will take a picture of the money order and share it with whoever wants.


    Please, folks! The cause is so real.

    I think that is a brilliant idea and thank you so much for being involved Debbie! May God bless you and those who donate to this fund! We will continue to pray that God will supply all of her and her family needs(menageriekeeper) and for the needs of ktn4eg too!
