House Republicans voted to strip away health insurance from tens of millions of Americans who have cancer or other pre-existing conditions--including me.
Vote NO on Trumpcare and any legislation that takes health coverage away from millions of Americans.
House Republicans just forced through a bill that could make me and millions of other Americans lose our health insurance. If Republicans get their way--and the Senate passes the cruel, morally-bankrupt Trumpcare--and I lose my insurance, I lose the way to afford a cure to my disease.
My cancer came out of nowhere for me. I had a nagging cough a few months ago, it was diagnosed as pneumonia, but the cough continued so I eventually went back to urgent care. This set off a chain of events and fun medical procedures that ended up with me being diagnosed with stage 4 Hodgkin's lymphoma, a type of cancer. It sounds terrible--but it can be cured. But I need access to health insurance to get better, and now they are threatening Obamacare, which is what will keep me alive, and hopefully well soon.
Cancer, or any kind of devastating medical condition can happen to anybody at any time. We need to stand up and tell them to stop.
