30 Oct For Those Of Us With Pre-existing Conditions…

For some of us, having medical insurance means survival. People, particularly the young and healthy, never really think about health insurance until they need it. I implore you to look and listen to these stories and then to take it one step further and vote on November 6th and allow people like me to get access to healthcare. We shouldn’t be penalized for being sick.

If this doesn’t convince you, then hopefully my wish to attend the inauguration will. Last go around, I was smack in the middle of chemotherapy and too sick to attend. Watching Barack Obama campaign and ultimately win the presidency made me look at cancer just the same way. It was something that seemed impossible but watching it unravel right before my eyes gave me hope. I’m not looking for pity, I just want a second chance at a dream. Not voting is like voting for the opposition. And if you’re still undecided, hopefully my story or the ones above will give you another perspective.

I wish you good health always.
