During the holidays we all witnessed the heart-breaking events unfolding at UCLA Medical Center as a beautiful young lady, Nataline Sarkysian, lost her battle with leukemia while cold-hearted Cigna HealthCare Insurance denied her approval for a critical liver transplant - deeming it "experimental" and therefore not something it covers.

I went to Forest Lawn Hollywood Hills this morning to pay respects to Nataline. It's one thing to read about it in newspapers and see it on television, and quite another to see the end results of the money-grubbing Cigna decision makers' policy first hand:
Every person in the United States who values their health and their life should be very afraid after seeing this. Here's hoping Nataline's family lawsuit against Cigna will help to institute some changes. The price they have paid to lead this battle is something no family should have to endure. Bless their hearts.
Please consider leaving a flower and note of support for her grieving family on the Findagrave.com memorial page that I created for her. Read more about Nataline on her official website hosted by her family attorney, Mark Geragos.
