Moral of the story: never admit anything to airlines. Or talk to them. Or give them money.

Today, we were at gate 8 ready to depart on Alaska Airlines for San Jose. An airline employee saw me seated in the handicap section of the boarding area. She asked me if I needed anything. The first time. I said no. The second time, O said, well I might need a bit of extra time to board, sometimes I feel weak. Because I said the word weak, the Alaska Airlines employee called a doctor, she claimed was associated with the airlines. After we board the plane. An Alaska representative boarded the plane, and told us I could not fly without a note from a doctor stating that I was cleared to fly. The video is of us being removed from the plane.

Elizabeth Sedway, 51, from Granite Bay, California, has been fighting blood cancer (multiple myeloma) for five years. Of the many struggles this has forced her to endure, being kicked off of airlines was never one of them until Monday, when she tried to fly home from Hawaii on Alaska Airlines. As Sedway described the encounter on Facebook:
