My Healthcare Horror Story

1 minute read Published:

Today is my daughter’s first birthday. This weekend we both went to Pete Stark’s Healthcare Townhall in Fremont to voice our support for a strong public option. Now I want to share with you my story of why I take this so personally. Stories of Health is a new website with video diaries of people’s health care horror stories. People from all over California told them about their experiences with a system in dire need of reform. I was interviewed in July on a hot day in Oakland, with my baby squirming to get off my lap.
