Alexa Seuss, Common Ground Adornments

North Fork jewelry-maker Alexa Seuss joins Gianna for the Medical Monday segment ahead of her 100+ mile trek from New York City to Long Island’s East End — Central Park to Mitchell Park — on Tuesday, May 10th. The walk is being held to help raise funds for New York non-profit RIP Medical Debt, which pays off portfolios of medical debt, by asking folks to sponsor mile-sections of her walk. As Seuss states, “Will this walk overhaul our healthcare system? No. Will it automatically start a Medicare for all program? Nope. But will it possibly help a rail-thin jaundiced 20-year-old sobbing in a hospital bed like me all those years ago? Yes. If this helps one person pay off their medical debt, that’s enough for me.” For more information visit
