I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the Affordable Care Act. My son, a 22 year old heroin addict in recovery for one year, is alive today because of this change you fought for. I was able to keep him on my insurance despite him not attending college. During our battle of his disease of addiction over the past four years -- he was able to get into rehab over 10 times and his life was saved. He is now working 40-50 hours a week, renting an apartment with other young people in recovery, adding to the economy and paying taxes.
I will continue to express my support of this Act that had a huge personal impact on my family. I am frustrated by the continued attacks on its benefits. So many people want to end it--apparently they haven't faced a life and death situation. Heroin addiction is a real threat to our upcoming generations. It kills our children and weakens the whole family.
Your faithful supporter
