11 years without insurance?!? With kids that would be a lot of white-knuckling it. I have been "fortunate" to be downtrodden enough to qualify for Medicaid and it saved my life. I was able to receive chemotherapy without anybody trying to squeeze blood out of a turnip. And now I'm able to receive quality care for my AS and for all of my children as well. Everyone should be able to get this kind of care in the US.
