Redditors Come Together To Help Student Pay For His Mom's Medical Bills

We spend a lot of time covering cringey people who make us believe there's very little hope for the human race, but every now and then we see people who make us believe the opposite. Redditor u/MrElonMusk420shared some photos yesterday of his beloved grandfather's leatherman tool with the intention of selling it to help pay for his sick mother's medical costs.

The community quickly decided they weren't going to let the big-hearted student sell the family heirloom, and instead started flooding his PayPal account with donations. He received so many kind gifts that eventually he removed his PayPal from the thread. It's wholesome moments like this that make us happy that the internet exists, and that there really are some solid people using it.

Disheartened Americans Reveal The Astronomical Medical Bills They've Received

2020 presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders tweeted out on Saturday asking followers about the most outrageous medical bills they've ever received. Let's just say, some of the replies are something else - like, the cost of purchasing a house. Reading through these makes us grateful that we've never dealt with anything of that scale, but it also makes us wonder why these costs are even necessary in the first place...

Woman Tweets Hospital Bill Revealing Lack Of Compassion In US Healthcare

This woman is sharing a sad, sad truth that all Americans have come to agree on... The US Healthcare system's complete lack of compassion. Jennifer Gunter decided to share her experience with the US Healthcare system, in response to a tweet from Bernie Sanders asking the public, "What's the most absurd medical bill you have ever received?"

Gunter did not hold back in exposing the truth. And what's even more absurd -- Gunter, is a doctor at the every hospital that treated her so indifferently.

Twitter Thread About One Guy's Struggles With Healthcare Is Incredibly Eye-Opening

Many of us grow up without really having to think about healthcare or the cost of just trying to survive. However, unfortunately many others don't have that privilege. Twitter user Jon Torsch exemplifies that exact sentiment in this Twitter thread where he goes into detail about growing up too poor to afford to fix his crooked teeth.

We don't want to take sides politically here, but we definitely can understand the stress of not having access to any sort of healthcare!

This Girl Invented a Teddy Bear With IV Bag To Provide Comfort To Pediatric IV Patients

Ella Casano is a 12-year-old girl who has been receiving intravenous (IV) infusions for ITP since the age of seven. Lately, she came up with this really brilliant idea that would make the experience less scary for other kids- the Medi Teddy. This clever invention is an adorable teddy bear that offers a friendly face to a child while hiding an IV bag in a mesh pouch in the bear's back: ""The cool thing about Medi Teddy is that it belongs to the child and they can bring it to all of their infusions. It's not thrown away or passed on to someone else. You can give it a name (mine is Bailey) and it will be your buddy during the long days at the hospital!", she told Laughing squid.  Ella based the Medi Teddy on her own experience and made our heart expanded. Check out these photos on her Instagram page.
