PRINCETON, IL—Saying that it's an item that he has been eyeing for a long time, local uninsured man Dan Kluge told reporters Monday that he’s hoping to receive a gift card to his local hospital for Christmas. “I told my family and friends that if anyone’s stumped on what to get me this year, I definitely wouldn't say no to a Midwest Memorial gift certificate,” said the 28-year-old who has lacked even the most basic health coverage since leaving his parents’ insurance plan, adding that he would be grateful whether the card came with a prepaid monetary value or if it was good for one ER visit of any cost. “I know the price might be pretty steep, so maybe a few people could go in on it together. I just hope someone gets it for me—it really is the only thing on my wish list this year.” At press time, Kluge was adding the final touches to his Christmas tree while teetering on the top step of a ladder precariously placed next to the fireplace.
