I am not a big fan of Michael Moore, but I did learn from a fellow parent on CI Circle today that his new film, Sicko, revolving around the problems with the American Health Insurance system, contains a rather large story about a four year old boy denied coverage for his bilateral implant. The good news is that after Moore became involved, the child did get approval for his second implant.

I previously had no intentions of seeing this movie, but I think it's worth a look now. You can view the trailer, although there is no preview of the cochlear implant story.

I really want to see it, but I can't hear in movie theaters and it seems no movie theaters in our area have captioned shows...

Interesting! I'll be sure to see it.

I am so thrilled to see how well Drew is doing!

I can't wait to hear how his activation goes.

I saw him on Oprah a few weeks ago and it was a real eye opener what he discovered. I just hope it opens the eyes of the executives and law makers that it is aimed at. -Mary
