Veteran Says She Waited Over 20 Years for Brain Tumor Diagnosis

On Monday, Navy veteran Regina Nale told Fox News Channel’s “Real Story” anchor Gretchen Carlson that she had to wait “six years and 31 days to receive a CT scan” that caught a brain tumor that Veterans Administration hospital doctors missed when she received a diagnosis for her chronic headaches from the VA in 2006.

She explained that the 2006 diagnosis took 17 years after she was referred to a VA office in West Virginia in 1989. Nale also said that she had recently been informed that back in 1985 the VA “found something suspicious on my brain but never told me.” Also according to Hal, the VA refused to pay for her surgery, and that she was kicked out of a therapeutic work program and lost benefits after she complained to a local TV station about her mistreatment.
