Lisa Doyle and Julie Olson, Minneapolis

Lisa’s daughter Julie is 23 years old and a survivor of sexual assault. After her assault Julie was able to receive counseling because she was on her parents insurance. Additionally, Julie has a history of heart problems and has been diagnosed with Dysautonomia, a potentially debilitating disease that can cause blackouts and make it difficult or impossible to work. Lisa’s current employer provides great health insurance coverage but followed federal laws for students and so Julie's health care would have ended at the end of this year. They are grateful that Julie will be able to remain on her parent’s plan.
