Letters to the Editor

Lincoln Daily News welcomes letters of appreciation, information and opinion on matters pertaining to the community. 
 
Controversial issues:
As a community we need to be able to talk openly about matters that affect the quality of our lives. The most effective and least offensive manner to get your point across is to stick to the issue and refrain from commenting on another person's opinion. Letters that deviate from focusing on the issue may be rejected or edited and marked as such.

Daughter needs life-sustaining medication

Send a link to a friend 

To the editor:

My daughter is 14 years post-liver transplant and has fought for medical coverage every step of the way.

Now the state of Illinois will pay for her to stop smoking, but they will not pay for anti-rejection medication. She has been without medicine for almost a week.

ALMH emergency room will give her half a dose, but thatís all, because insurance would not allow more.

Where do you go when everyone is passing the buck and the one that is hurt is the girl without the medicine that will keep her alive?

Antonia E. Lolling

(See ALMH response.)
