Today while I waited for my 3rd dose of #Pfizer, an older man sat next to me, waiting for his 3rd #Moderna. We got to talking. /1
This man had covid, pre-vaccines, was hospitalized 10 days, on a vent, didn't think he was going to make it. Luckily, he did. /2
He then gets both Moderna doses. So happy he's ok. And a month later finds out he has late stage pancreatic #cancer. /3
He's now severely immunocompromised from cancer & chemo. Down 65lbs in 2 months. Terrified to leave the house because he knows he won't beat covid again. /4
And I just want to say, THIS. THIS IS WHAT YOU'RE DOING W YOUR ANTI MASK / VAX BS. This man is likely in his last days on earth. He should be bucket listing the shit out of everything!! But instead, he's scared and doesn't generally leave the house except for med care. /5
Because you can't be bothered to listen to SCIENCE and DOCTORS and instead you want to mock folx in masks - scared, sheep, pathetic, etc. - when you have a 3rd grade science comprehension. /6
FUCK that. I'm so angry and sad for this man, and the others like him. It's not fair. And it could be better. It doesn't have to be like this. /7
So, Anthony I-don't-know-your-last-name, receiving pancreatic cancer care @UHhospitals, I'm so sorry. I hope that there's a miracle in your future and you stay covid free and enter remission. /8
I hope you're able to get back to a #life without fear and pain. This gal is rooting for you with her whole heart.
