Darrell Richardson doesn’t know how long his brother, Dennis, may have lived if he had received faster treatment from the Phoenix Veterans Affairs Health Care system.
But he’s sure that Dennis’ final months would have been more comfortable and more hopeful if the VA had been more helpful.
“They just kept telling him he had to wait his turn,” Richardson said. “But his liver cancer was moving too fast. His pain was too intense.”
