Tesfahunega – Aurora, CO

Tesfahunega, an Aurora resident and member of the Ethiopian community describes his battle with congestive heart failure and no insurance.  He claims he uses the Emergency Room to seek treatment feels hurt by the lack of empathy amongst health care workers.

“And nobody cares, the way I see it they don’t care.  They see me going back and forth to the emergency room and should get me my insurance card.  They know I’m in trouble; its just there is nothing I can do.  But there is a lot they can do.”
