Obamacare: Your story
Terminal illness stole my family's health insurance
- dsashin, CNN iReport producer
For 30 years I have been able to access health insurance for my family through my employer.
Since the onset of my disease, my wife left work to care for me and, although I receive benefits through Medicare, my wife and children cannot purchase insurance even though none of them are ill. One child is underweight, one is an expectant father and the others have sought professional therapy to support them as they watch their father become paralyzed.
My family needs Obamacare now.
