Parents are outraged because they say they’re being restricted from accompanying their sick children to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital Wednesday because first lady Michelle Obama is visiting – and security measures prohibit both parents from escorting the little patients to medical appointments.
A woman named Angie Rouse Green posted the following message to Facebook Tuesday:
“RANT: I am LIVID!!!!!! I just got a phone call from a St Jude mom whose son is battling a brain tumor. … Tomorrow, this little boy has his MRI. The results come after. His mom was told that she cannot bring her husband with her to get the MRI results!
“Why you ask?? Well, because the first lady and her entourage will be in the hospital tomorrow for, I assume, a photo shoot and Secret Service has pretty much shut down to bare necessity our hospital. Only one person allowed per patient, no social media in hospital, no photos in hospital, cars will be towed in garage, more than one person with patient will be turned away at the gate by Secret Service!”
