This is from an interview I did in January 2012. You can read the full article from my media page.
NEW YORK (REUTERS) — When your health insurance provider denies an
experimental treatment or a high-cost drug, how much are you willing to pay for
the care you believe you need?
Barby Ingle, a former cheerleading and dance coach at Washington University
who now lives in a Phoenix suburb, has been forced to face this question.
Her troubles began in 2002 when her car collided with another in a parking lot.
The accident was minor, but her health problems lingered. She went from doctor
to doctor; drugs, physical therapy and surgery did not help and her condition
worsened. She started to feel a burning pain in her neck and arms, her skin
began to discolor and she had trouble moving. Finally, she had to stop working.
It wasn’t until three years later that an anesthesiologist put it all together. Ingle,
now 39, had a rare progressive disease called Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, or
RSD. The doctor prescribed a series of procedures called radiofrequency
ablations, which were thought to help people with RSD.
I am heading out to the Cauliflower Alley Club Seminars in Vegas, there will be five major seminars, dealing with many different aspects of being a professional wrestler, are on tap for the second and third days of the annual reunion in Las Vegas, NV. If you’re a young wrestler, a promoter, a manager or a referee, you won’t want to miss them! The seminars are held in Salon D of the Nevada Ballroom, right next to the CAC’s main room on the convention floor of the Gold Coast Hotel. The Power of Pain Foundation will be on hand to distribute information on Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy and other Neuropathy conditions. I will be also filming interviews with the wrestlers for my show Painology. Sad to be leaving Ken Taylor behind for a day, but excited to be with one of our POPF State ambassadors, Julie Johnson! It will be a good week and I am doing OK physically since my infusions. I will take it easy though, don’t plan on leaving the hotel, and not staying on the strip, so it should be restful between exhibit hall hours. So if your in Vegas Monday and need something to do? “Casino Royale” will take place at 6PM Monday April 16th in the Banquet room of the CAC Reunion. Stars appearing so far Sinn Bohdi (representing Freakshow Wrestling), WWE Diva Stacey “The Kat” Carter (representing Freakshow Wrestling), A.J. Kirsch & Martin Casaus (from WWE Tough Enough), Disco Inferno (former WCW Star), Wrestling Legend & WWE Hall Of Famer, Harley Race, WWE star, Zach Gowen, Gulf Coast Wrestlers Reunion 2012 Speedy Hatfield Referee of the Year Honoree, Morgan Dollar, plus more announced in the coming days… http://www.caulifloweralleyclub.org/2012/03/22/pro-wrestling-returns-to-the-gold-coast-april-16th/
