Default Is he an SF member, the prick?

A letter from a Beaver County oral surgeon effectively laying off an employee with cancer is sparking social media outrage.

In the letter, Dr. George Visnich says he is laying off Carol Jumper because she has cancer.

The letter states: “You are currently engaged in a battle against cancer that will be demanding physically, mentally, and emotionally. You will not be able to function in my office at the level required while battling for your life. Because of this, I am laying you off without pay as of August 11, 2014.”

An attorney for Visnich told the Beaver County Times that he was trying to do the humanitarian thing.

Attorney Larry Kelly says Visnich layed Jumper off so she could collect unemployment benefits during her treatment, with the understanding that she could come back to work when she was feeling better.

The letter Visnich sent went on to say, “Our thoughts and prayers are with you as you fight this horrible disease.”

Friends of Jumpers are now organizing several upcoming events to help raise money for her medical expenses.

They have created a Facebook group called “Bumper’s Buddies to help raise awareness for Carol’s fight.

If only his thoughts and prayers could, you know, actually cure cancer. What an asshat.

At least his shitty letter going viral has prompted an outpouring of support for Carol Jumper.

Former SF member. TAPES can be such a humanitarian. He went on to elaborate:


Quote:
I only do this to show my compassion for your plight and to allow you the opportunity to pull yourself up by your jackboot straps. It is time to stop playing the victim and show this disease some tough love. Even though I am laying you off without pay, I will be providing you with your own personal medical professional to aid you through this difficult time. He goes by the name of Dr. Joseph Mengele Jr. and is one of the top doctor's in the world in... ahem.... experimental cancer treatment.

You will be expected to report to his exclusive, reclusive, and extremely secure treatment camp where he maintains a large concentration of cancer patients that he performs his medical services on free of charge. You will remain in his care there until such time as he has fully eradicated your disease through whatever means necessary.

Good luck to you as you shall need it.

Yours truly in hope,
TAPES 18N1

Seriously though. What a horrible, horrible person.
