The woman in this picture appears to be pregnant but she’s not. That’s not a baby growing inside her stomach, it’s a massive tumor. To make matters worse, the woman can’t get doctors to remove the tumor because she doesn’t have health insurance.

Georgia resident Doris Lewis, 59, says four different hospitals have turned down her request for surgery because she doesn’t have health insurance. Lewis says she lost her health insurance after her husband passed away but it didn’t become a problem until the tumor started growing.

“It’s getting bigger every day,” said Lewis. “I can feel it on my body. My heart hurts a little bit. I didn’t know it was a tumor in there. I thought I was just gaining weight at first. Some of the guys [doctors] looked at me and said, ‘You got a tumor in there. That is so big. Bout to pop.’”
