A man named Don Bouvet was unable to get a much needed cancer treatment because of Obamacare’s skyrocketing premiums and high deductibles.
Yeah, that’s right. The darling monstrosity of the Left, Obamacare, has been imploding under its own weight, and now there are millions of Americans who simply cannot afford the ever-rising premiums, so they cannot get treatment whenever they want.
Mr. Bouvet suffers from bladder cancer, and thanks to Obamacare’s rising costs he couldn’t afford his chemotherapy treatment last year.
After fighting to cope with rising premiums, crushing his family and leaving them feeling helpless, they received a personal check from Donald Trump for $10,000 to cover the treatment.
On Friday, more than a year later, Bouvet met with President Trump during an Oval Office visit where he told the president that he is now cancer-free.
Reported by NBC News, “The president saved my life,” Bouvet said during the emotional Oval Office meeting. “And I told him that.”
Bouvet’s son, Shane, worked for the Trump presidential campaign in 2016. It was he who reportedly told the president-elect the night before his inauguration that his father was struggling to pay for a cancer treatment he desperately needed to stay alive.
Later, as Shane arrived home in Stonington, Illinois, he received a personal check in the mail from Donald Trump for $10,000.
“Shane — You are a great guy — thanks for all of your help,” Trump wrote on presidential stationary. He immediately gave the check to his father to help pay for the unbelievable high deductible cost thanks to Obamacare.
Don Bouvet now says that he is alive today thanks to the incredible kindness of Donald Trump.
“You didn’t have anything,” Trump said to Shane. “And you gave all of it. … That’s an incredible son.”
“It’s very emotional because … one day I wanted to come here, or meet you somewhere, shake your hand, look you in the eye, and say, ‘Thank you for saving my life,’” Don Bouvet told the president. “And I thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
Trump was so impressed with the Bouvet family that after their meeting he gave them another check for $5,000.00.
Donald Trump is the man that the Left calls evil, that the mainstream news media calls heartless and plays the class warfare card on all the time. You’re not going to see the CNNs and MSNBCs covering this story. They are too busy trying to bring Trump down because they can not handle that Hillary Clinton lost.
