Brain Tumor Survivor Shona Holmes the New Face of Gov’t Health Care


Canadian Shona Holmes survived a brain tumor because she had the option to go to the U.S. for care; now she’s speaking out against government-run health care

WASHINGTON, June 22 /Christian Newswire/ — Canadian Shona Holmes, a brain tumor survivor, appeals to Americans to reject a Washington takeover of health care: “I survived a brain tumor. But if I’d relied on my government, I’d be dead.” That’s because her government told her she’d have to wait six months for the urgent care she needed. She mortgaged her house and came to the United States, where she received care that saved her life. Now she’s speaking out against so-called health care reforms that put politicians and bureaucrats between patients and doctors.

WHAT: Shona Holmes is running in Arkansas, Indiana, Iowa, Louisiana, Maine, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, Washington, D.C., and parts of Maryland and Virginia as part of the multimillion-dollar initiative from Patients United Now to educate the American public on the effects of government-run health care.
