Moving Op-Ed written by Dr. Stephen Patrick


.

Sometimes I get lost in the "wonkiness" of this whole debate and forget about the millions of Americans WITH health insurance who have struggled or continue to struggle within our current health system.  Dr. Stephen Patrick, a pediatrician in Michigan, and Doctors for America member reminded me again today of why we all work hard everyday for health insurance reform.  He wrote a moving piece in USA Todaysharing his mother's battle with cancer and her battle with the health care system.  I thank him greatly for his courage in sharing this story.

It is a powerful piece.  Please read it and share it widely.
