17-year-old boy needs cancer treatment, PacifiCare denies

CYPRESS, Calif., March 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Registered nurses, friends and concerned community members will join the family of Nick Colombo marching on the corporate offices of health insurance giant PacifiCare in Orange County this Tuesday to protest the denial of a life-saving cancer treatment for the 17-year-old, the California Nurses Association/National Nurses Organizing Committee (CNA/NNOC) announces.

The family and the nurses are also urgently appealing to the public to call PacifiCare at 714-828-1821 and demand they provide the care Nick needs.

Supporters can deliver the same message to PacifiCare spokesman Tyler Mason at 714-226-3530

What: March on PacifiCare

When: Tuesday, March 25, 10:00 am

Where: PacifiCare Headquarters,

5701 Katella Ave, Cypress, 90630

"My brother Nick Colombo is just 17 years old, and he has suffered with a painful bone cancer for four years," said Ricky Colombo, Nick's 19-year old brother. "Our insurance company, PacifiCare, denied Nick radiation treatment available in Kansas City which can save his life. He has exhausted all other treatment options but nothing worked. This is our last effort and this procedure has worked before with people in Nick's situation. We are now standing up for Nick, and telling PacifiCare that what they are doing is wrong."

Nick's brother Ricky asked for assistance in the patient stories section of the Guaranteed Healthcare, a Web site maintained by CNA/NNOC to document the stories of real people harmed by the health insurance companies.
