CNN's Sympathy and PrObama Ploy Leaves Out The Community, Church, and Diet Changes...

Violet McManus' parents and Elizabeth Cohen (with all due respect to hakohenet-- since, as far as I know, I have no position to be rebuking a kohenet too harshly, since I'm just an Yisra'elit. Anyway, Violet McManus' parents and Elizabeth Cohen) are just being ridiculous. Why was she blue and shaking after 11 months? Sometimes medical episodes do happen; but diet and other factors play a huge role in postnatal, infant, and toddler development. Also, $5,000,000 is a very-fair insurance cap. As I told the friend who shared this article with me, insurance is meant to be insurance and not a complete net. Where's the McManus' church or synagogue helping Violet? Where is the McManus' family community? Why is she on two drugs and not had diet changes?

By the way, I'm speaking as an OCD-, Anxiety-, Depression-diagnosed-and-medicated, IBS- and ADD-unmedicated person with Diplegic Spastia Cerebral Palsy, and a person whose mom gave her a very-healthy diet throughout her postnatal and toddler (and encouraged a healthy diet throughout her preteen and successive) years; and that healthy diet helped manage a lot of my problems and save me from more problems. I didn't have a lot of church and community support, either, by the way-- and my mom was a single mom throughout most of her marriage (My dad wasn't really a dad to us) and from the time of her divorce on June 11, 1998.


'Completely blue in her crib'
Violet McManus was born healthy, but when she was 11 months old her parents woke up in the middle of the night in their Novato, California, home to find her having a seizure.

"She was completely blue in her crib and shaking," Walters remembers.
It was to be the first of hundreds of seizures -- sometimes thirty in one day.
Violet has been hospitalized about six times and each hospitalization cost more than $50,000.
She's now on two drugs to control the seizures and carries oxygen with her wherever she goes because she stops breathing when she has her seizures. She needs speech therapy and frequent doctor's visits.
Matt McManus, Violet's father, gets health insurance through his work as a video game designer. Before health care reform, there was a $5 million lifetime limit on Violet's insurance policy. Violet is now 3 and her parents calculate she could hit that cap by her 5th birthday, and almost certainly by her 10th.
