No way to treat a veteran

I discovered I have had gum cancer for about four years but the St. Louis VA dental clinic decided not to tell me until a few weeks ago. Why? Were they hoping I would be dead by now?

The cancer has been spreading for four years, and the VA dental wants me to wait. For what? Death? Do they have a death waiting list? Yeah, they sure do take care of their veterans.
