A woman with a brain tumor who was denied coverage by Quebec's Health Insurance Board (RAMQ) got effective surgery in the United States that was not available in Quebec. Celine Harding-Jones, a mother of two, had the operation. Jones has been in excruciating discomfort for the past seven years. Due to her continual suffering, she was brought to the emergency room multiple times. she had a rare brain tumor known as a colloid cyst.When the neurosurgeons in Quebec gave up, it was determined that the procedure would be performed in the United States. Only the Weill Cornell Medicine Brain and Spine Center in New York offers surgery to remove the tumor. Quebec's insurance board initially agreed to cover specialist fees for the surgery, but refused to foot the bill.
