Girl has blunt message for Aetna after her brain surgery request was denied

( CNN) Cara Pressman sobbed in the big ruby-red chair in her living room. The 15 -year-old tried to absorb the devastating news relayed by her parents: that their insurance company, Aetna, denied her for a minimally invasive brain surgery who are able to terminate the convulsions that have haunted her since she was 9 years old.

“When my mothers told me, I went kind of blank and started crying, ” she said. “I screamed for like an hour.”

Her friends had been lined up to visit her in research hospitals for the surgery three days away, on Monday, October 23. Between tears, she texted them that the whole thing was off.
