Cheryl needs our help

http://celebratecheryl.com/2013/03/1...ver-community/

Cheryl is the front person at sotar. If you've ordered a boat, or just called for info, you've probably talked with her. She has developed cancer and has no insurance. Please check out the page above for a benefit auction, or just to give a donation to help with her medical bills. If anyone had experience or knowledge of what cancer treatment costs, you probably realize that she could use a lot of help.

Thank you Laura for posting this. There will be a benefit auction for a few weeks in April. All the proceeds will go to help make a dent in Cheryl's mounting medical bills. Check the website often as more details emerge. Please pass the word!!!!!

Cheryl, sorry to hear of your health issues, before you get to deep in debt check out the "Gerson miracle" a great healthy alternative to modern medicine. The testimonials on Youtube are great. Good luck!

The individual organizers of this auction should be applauded for their initiative in helping this woman, and I do expect to participate in the auction.
But SOTAR should be shamed for not providing insurance to this employee. This should be a message to all employers. Taking short-term savings by not providing health insurance should come at a cost.

You should be shamed for making assumptions and badmouthing a good company when you haven't presented any facts. Health insurance is not a universal right of employment. If I were an idiot like you I could speculate on numerous valid reasons for her to be uninsured, but none of that including your comment are in any way helpful.

Lets keep this on topic, healthcare is a major issue in the U.S. Arguing it on this thread wont' help Cheryl's cause.

Did SOTAR provide her with insurance? It doesn't take much speculation to conclude that they did not. They should have.
Any evidence to the contrary is appreciated.

Sorry, but it does help to identify injustices when we see them. You cannot solve the injustice if you refuse to identify it.
