Finn Bullers, 49, was a stalwart reporter at the Kansas City Star covering Johnson County for more than two decades.
However, today Bullers (Facebook photo) has fallen on hard times.
He is dealing with muscular dystrophy, type-1 diabetes, and is dependent on a ventilator to breathe. Due to the transition to KanCare on Dec. he briefly lost his home nursing care when he was dropped from his healthcare service at midnight on December 31.
The father of two children, 12 and 8, Bullers requires almost around-the-clock care. Luckily the state’s ombudsman was able to handle the care issue.
A former journalism student of Bullers’ wife, Anne, has also started a Facebook page to help raise funds for the family.
Bullers worked at the Quad Cities Times as an assistant region editor and was with the KC Star until 2010. He is a 1986 graduate of Iowa State University.
