‘Beautiful People Dying for No Reason’: Grieving Woman Says Veteran Father-in-Law Died Awaiting VA Appointment
Ainsley Earhardt took a trip to Arizona to speak with the families of veterans who reportedly died while waiting for appointments at the Phoenix VA Medical Center.
Last week, Fox News reported that a former VA doctor in the Phoenix system blew the whistle on a secret waiting list used to conceal that 1,400-1,600 sick veterans were forced to wait months to see a doctor.
Veteran Thomas Breen was 71 when he became ill and turned to the VA hospital for help. He filled up a milk jug with bloody urine, but still, the hospital sent him home and told his family that a primary care doctor would call in one to three days.
When a doctor did not call, Breen’s daughter-in-law Sally Barns-Breen said she called the doctor on multiple occasions, but got no answer.
A few months later, in November, Breen began to have seizures, and his family took him to a different hospital. It was there that he was diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer. He died a few weeks later.
In December, Sally said the doctor finally called to say Breen could be seen by a doctor, but he had already passed away.
“There’s so many beautiful people that are dying for no reason, for lack of care and a secret list. VA is responsible for all these tears and lives that they caused with their secret list,” Sally said.
Earhardt talked to many affected veterans’ families as part of a week-long series. Tune in to “Hannity” this week at 10p ET for more on this shocking report.
