Economy dooms uninsured cancer patients

"I don't want to die. I shouldn't have to die. This is a county hospital. This is for people that, like me, many people have lost their insurance, have not any other resources. I mean, I was a responsible person. I bought my house. I put money away. I raised my two children. And now I have nothing. You know my house isn't worth anything. I have no money. And I said 'What do I do? But what do all these other people do after me?' And they said, 'We don't know.'"
Counting my blessings. I have my troubles, but I'm not one of the thousands of uninsured cancer patients in Nevada who've lost their lifeline. This 60 Minutes story is terrifying.
