Subject: Covering Phyllis Diller back injury — Want MD advice?

Hi-

Hope all is well. I wanted to check in to find out if you will be covering the latest news announcement regarding Phyllis Diller‘s back fracture? If so, I’d like to offer you the top orthopedic spine surgeon in New York at Mount Sinai Hospital, Sean McCance, MD, who can speak to the latest techniques for preventing and treating back fractures and injuries, long-term consequences and surgical indications and options. The inclusion of medical expert insight would be a great supplement to the reports!

Contact me to set up an interview with Dr. McCance.

I hope to hear from you.

Best,

[FLACK REDACTED]
