The Ali Vatter Matter...

Thanks to the help of Mark Hoppus, Blink 182, FOB, AAR, many awesome fellow roadies, and an insane amount of random kind strangers...I have successfully paid the main hospital bill! I was able to settle for $15,000 and thanks to everyone who helped (financially and emotionally) I have received confirmation that this bill has been taken care of. I still have a remaining $7000 in additional bills, but have the faith that these will be taken care of in time...and small payments! Again, I really want everyone to know how much it has meant to me to see so many people contributing to my situation. Bless you all! xo
PS. After all the wonderful help I have received, the least I can do is give back. There is a 10 yr named Danielle Bartlett who is extremely ill. Her only wish through the Make A Wish foundation is to receive 1000 card via the postal service. Please take a few minutes out of your day to send her a card and help a little girl have a wonderful xmas! Please send cards to: Danielle Bartlett, 260 Country Club Rd, Richwood WV, 26261

The Ali Vatter Matter...

The matter at hand is healthcare and how like millions of Americans out there, Ali Vatter can't get health insurance. Due to a pre-existing condition, Ali has been denied NUMEROUS times for health insurance. She is even willing to pay whatever it takes, and still no companies will insure her.
While working on tour with Blink 182 and Fallout Boy, she was feeling ill and was rushed to the hospital. After twelve hours of numerous testing, the doctors eventually discovered that she needed her appendix out immediately. As the tour continued on, Ali had to stay behind in Tampa, Florida all alone, get surgery and stay in the hospital to heal for 3 days.
Now, you may be thinking, no big deal, appendix surgery is easy, blah blah blah... BUT what you may not realize is that all the tests and hospital stay cost her $ 42,850!
If she was able to get health insurance, which she had tried to do numerous times, The total cost would have been thousands of dollars less. But that is not the case. Ali is a victim of discrimination along with 12.6 MILLION non-eldery Americans! Check out this site to learn more:

We decided that with everything Obama is trying to accomplish right now, it wouldn't hurt to have another voice to let America know that we need to CHANGE our healthcare system.

If you have any feelings about this issue, please feel free to write to: We will post entries we feel help this cause and hopefully can get some really good stories that could potentially change people's minds in Washington!

If you would like to help out Ali Vatter and the millions of people that are discriminated against, PLEASE give what you can! Click the donate link and please give what you can so we can help Ali pay her bill. Hopefully, we can cover the whole thing and whatever is left over can go to another uninsured person who is in need.

We would like to think of this as The Uninsured Relief Fund! (Thanks Brock;)

So.... Please contribute to a great cause, email your thoughts and lets change the way our healthcare system works so everyone can get healthcare and not go broke!

Thanks for listening!
