Seriously though, that's quite a generous guy right there. Hopefully she'll be ok.
Yeah, I kind of admit I thought that too.

just one note to all the yanks who will be crying how great the USA is,, if i was to get cancer again (and I will) I wouldnt go through the treatment again anyway, so fuck knows y i,m still here, so its USA here I come

I wouldn't say gas is cheap here, but I have heard it's way more expensive in other places. I don't drive an SUV. So nyeah! lol

The way the government uses taxes is very wonky. But that's a whole other subject.

Says anything over the asking price goes to the girl. Remember that he turned down 1.5million and says he has lowered the asking price by 50% so it's safe to assume he expected more than 3 million first time around

Seem less generous now? I may have read it wrong or just too much of a pessimist on a Tuesday. Hope the girl gets the help she needs but I fear he is motivated more by greed (free publicity) than concern for his employee.

^ My thoughts exactly. He benefits from this, too. It's a good market strategy- they both get what they want. I'm always suspicious of anyone who boasts about their own generosity to the media.
