VA says it can't comment.
It’s a story KTRH first shared with you last summer, a local veteran suffering from cancer now struggling to stay afloat because she has yet to receive VA benefits.
You may recall Laura Wurzburger's paperwork was lost by the VA, but just after our story aired a year ago, Congressman Ron Paul's office got involved, the VA then found her file and other veterans groups got involved.
But as Wurzburger tells KTRH News, nothing has changed.
"The Texas Veterans Commission has tried to do the best they can," she says. "I have not spoken with anyone recently, but supposedly they just need to get their butt in gear, get me to some doctors and make a decision."
Wurzburger has battled two bouts of cancer, and was discharged from the Navy because of it. Still, she and her husband are left struggling to pay her medical bills and stay afloat.
"We have a roof over our head and food on our table, and I thank God for that every day," she says. "But it’s not easy for people who have worked all their lives, to have to live like this is just unimaginable."
Her husband Warren worries this is not an isolated case.
"I can't image she's the only veteran who has been in this sinkhole," he says. "I would image that there's got to be a number of veterans waiting for benefits to assist them, that they rightfully deserve, which have been waiting potentially years."
We reached out to Congressman Paul's office, but didn't hear back from them before this story aired.
The VA issued a statement saying: "To protect Mrs. Wurzburger's Privacy of Information, we cannot share details regarding her VA benefits with you at this time. Information regarding Veteran's benefits can only be shared with personnel authorized by the Veteran in writing."
