Inland Valley Daily Bulletin

With tears in her eyes, Kathleen Carter told a jury on Monday what it felt like to receive an unexpected hospital bill for more than $100,000 following her cancer treatment. She also talked about how she had to deal with the creditors who called her home looking for payment.

“The notices were very rude, abrasive, nasty,” she said on the witness stand in West Valley Superior Court. “I didn’t want to answer the phone ever after that.”
