RevCam's just getting into his office when Lynn stops by, asking how RevCam's conversation with Russell went. RevCam tells her that there's a reason Russell wants the girls to move to Memphis. Has Lynn ever heard of St. Jude's Research Hospital? She has, but thought it was only for kids with cancer. She's wrong, of course, as the hospital is a research facility for many other childhood diseases as well, including sickle cell. Russell heard about this and got some information that RevCam claims is "very interesting." I bet it isn't. Arms folded defiantly, Lynn says she's not sending her kids anywhere just because her deadbeat ex thinks something is interesting. "They have a new drug," says RevCam, "one that won't make you sick." One that won't make you crash your car, or make you feel three feet thick. Until Ray Parker Jr. steals your song for the Ghostbusters theme. RevCams PSAs that St. Jude's has had a drug for sickle cell for a while now, and it's been very helpful to a lot of kids with limited side effects. Shouldn't Lynn know this? Wouldn't a mother spend, like, every waking moment research her kids' serious illness and any possible drugs for it, instead of just hoping that someone she knows happens to stumble onto a research hospital like that?
Lynn says that there's no way she can afford any new drugs. She's already spending thirty thousand dollars a year for each kid already. Wait wait wait -- Lynn is spending sixty thousand dollars a year, and she's only working one part-time job? While Zoe's parents are working thirty jobs between them, and still can't pay for food? The hell? It's not an issue anyway, as St. Jude's pays for whatever insurance doesn't cover. Plus, the new mystery drug could very well eliminate a lot of those medical expenses. Kids are in less pain, they're in the hospital less, and it seems to decrease the likelihood of strokes. "But it's a RISK," says Lynn. Yes, Lynn, it is. You'll have to take a LEAP OF FAITH. RevCam says that the long-term effects of the new drug aren't known yet, but the long-term effects of blood transfusions are, and they're not good.
