The number of patients with cancer or other diseases or conditions who are losing their health care thanks to the Obamacare law continues to pile up. Today, news outlets are focused on Gloria Cantor, a Floridian woman battling cancer, who received a note that her and her husband Jay’s health insurance will be dropped in Summer 2014 due to a loophole in Obamacare.

The news for the Cantor family is particularly devastating because Gloria has five brain tumors and tumors in her bones.

The Weekly Standard cites a local television news station today that has the family’s heartbreaking story.

“A woman in a life and death battle with cancer was dealt another devastating blow,” says the Florida anchor.



“This letter makes more problems for us,” says the cancer victim. “That we don’t need at this moment.”

The anchor continues, “She just found out she’s being dropped by her insurance company because of a loophole in Obamacare. Incredible story. Gloria Cantor has been fighting this illness for months with her husband … at her side.”

“This letter makes more problems for us we don’t need at this moment,” says the cancer victim.

Previously, Edie Littlefield Sundby, who has stage 4 gallbladder cancer, wrote of her situation since losing her Cadillac insurance plan because of Obamacare.

And then there’s Michael Cerpok, a leukemia survivor in Fountain Hills, Arizona, whose future is not looking too rosy.
