Longtime Company Worker Loses Job, Insurance During Health Crisis

Zelienople resident Jim Young said he felt like family working at direct mail company MSP in Freedom, but that he’s feeling anything but after he was told he’s being laid off in the middle of a health crisis.

What I have to say: It is unfortunate that folks who are diagnosed with a Vasculitis disease lose their health insurance because they are unable to work. It is these types of people that need help the most.

The Lauren Currie Twilight Foundation


Lauren Currie was 15 years old when she died of Vasculitis at Crosshouse Hospital in Kilmarnock on the 23rd October 2010. Lauren was affected by a particularly rare and aggressive variant of Vasculitis called Wegener’s Granulomatosis .

 
What is clear now is that Wegener’s Granulomatosis is very difficult to diagnose and is relatively unfamiliar with physicians. It often takes a physician with first hand experience of the disease and suspicion to help in the diagnosis.
The Lauren Currie Twilight Foundation is committed to funding research and awareness to help in the diagnosis of Vasculitis, improving treatment through research, greater awareness of the disease and support for the patients and families living with the disease.

 

What I have to say: Kudos to this Foundation.
