We're all used to the anti-vaxxer who hits all of the Bingo card boxes. I thought I'd give you a little something different before I head out on vacation. No goatee. Educated. Pretty. Not overly religious.
Let me introduce you to 44 year old Kimberley Stefanski of Kelowna, British Columbia. Her Facebook feed is filled with #BossBabe inspirational type messages and seems to give advice on cryptocurrencies. She has a following of almost 8k.
There is no schadenfreude in this story…well, maybe a tiny bit. Read the story first and then jump to comments here.
I don't know if she's involved in some sort of MLM or what her crypto business actually provides.
She shares a ton of inspirational posts. It's a nice change from the angry, political and racist posts that we're used to from anti-vaxxers.
She also shares a ton of selfies.
She starts to stray, ever so slightly. Inspirational mixed with a tad bit of COVID.
It’s subtle, but it’s there.
She is really good with subtle hints.
She has had a major brush with death before. You can read more about the crash here. Thanks to our HCAz spies who discovered the case was dismissed without prejudice so no money was paid out.
Sorry, I got a little sidetracked. Let's get back to her COVID story.
In early August, she shares this not-so-subtle post.
And 10 days later.....
Her friend then shares this. 🤔
Kimberley makes it off the ventilator. And it looks like she is going to be ok. No cat bounce here. 🥳
Her COVID experience now tops the plane crash.
There's always that one friend. 🤦♀️
It's a very lonely experience.
Ahhhh. She hasn't shaved her legs in 30 whole days.
And she is finally going home.
A small refreshing change from the norm. Appreciation for all the healthcare workers!
She's reminiscing about healthier days.
And here we go with the DOUBLING down.
Comments on the above post. UGH!
This post always annoys the shit out of me.
As our HCAz reader said, "ECHO CHAMBER".
Some reflection...but still no vaccination redemption.
She's a lucky one. This is nothing compared to what most of those who are featured on SAV/HCAz go through.
And she's getting healthier. No cat bounce.
Kimberely really needs to read SAV to see how lucky she is.
We were really hoping at one stage in her COVID journey that she'd push for the vaccine. She never did. All I can say is good luck on your second round. It’s bound to happen.
Lastly, Kimberely is fortunate that Canada has universal, public-funded healthcare. She won't go bankrupt or leave a huge bill behind from a hospital stay like that. Our American anti-vaxxers, not so much.
Don't be a Kimberely. Why go through something that is scarier than a plane crash? Get vaccinated. Get your booster. Get your kids vaccinated.
