Ft Smith, AR |
You have to give a star or I wouldn't have given any!! This was the most hateful man during the most scary time of my life! Not allowed to ask any questions, no he doesn't want to be questioned. Was told I had Multiple Myeloma, and needed a bone marrow transplant and wasn't even allowed to know where he wanted to send me!! Seriously, 2 young children to think about, am I going to live or not......PLEASE STAY AWAY FROM THIS EGOMANIAC!!!!!
