Anyone who has seen the movie Burn will not forget Brendan “Doogie” Milewski’s story. He was paralyzed when a wall collapsed at a commerical building fire on August 13, 2010. Now, Brendan Milewski has another story to tell. This time it is to WJBK-TV reporter Charlie LeDuff and it’s about the impact of Detroit’s bankruptcy. Milewski tells LeDuff the city is canceling his health insurance:
“I got a letter saying that my healthcare, through the city of Detroit, was going to be terminated as of January 1, 2014, and that, if I don’t have another plan purchased by December 15th of this year, that I’ll have a gap in coverage. And they’re offering a $200 a month stipend to supplement the cost of purchasing my own health insurance.
“I definitely feel discarded. It’s disheartening that guys like me put ourselves on the line everyday. These Detroit firemen, they put their lives, their bodies, on the line every day.
