Feel free to use this as a template if you are stuck. This isn’t pretty, but I am somewhat crunched for time.
You and I have a mutual friend who tells me that you are one of the best fathers he has ever met. I’m a parent too and hope to appeal to you on that level.
In 2008, I underwent treatment for breast cancer at age 41. At the time, my kids were going into 3rd and 1st grade at St Columban and I was scared for lots of reasons. One was that my husband would lose his job and health insurance during the Great Recession. Luckily it didn’t happen, because I was uninsurable and medical bills would have ruined us.
Instead, my kids are in high school at MND and Moeller, I am still alive, and still covered under my husband’s health insurance.
Unfortunately, this year my children hit a health snag. They both were diagnosed with Celiac Disease (an auto immune disorder). My son had an acute health crisis this month – a massive blood clot brought on by a previously undiagnosed anatomical abnormality.
Please – don’t vote for the skinny repeal, which is just a veiled attempt to repeal the ACA. We need preexisting conditions included so my kids can have a safe and healthy future. As much as some complain, we need the mandate to spread the risk pool, as every other insurance product does. I know the ACA needs to be fixed and trust that can be done.
Thank you for you time and please stand strong against the pressure from bullies who only want a “win” instead of what’s best for this country.
