“If it was not for President Obama, my beloved daughter may not be alive”

“My daughter Michaela was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer in March of 2011. She was 23 years old and had graduated the prior year with a degree in nursing. She was diagnosed four months after being on the job and therefore did not have much sick time. If it were not for the Affordable Care Act, she would have been without insurance. Michaela needed five months of chemotherapy, six weeks of radiation, and had both breasts removed. She is now back at work taking care of patients. If it was not for President Obama, my beloved daughter may not be alive today.”

—Denise, New York
