Alec and I don’t have health insurance. We work on contract and also are
self-employed. He had open heart surgery in 2002. I have epilepsy (adult onset starting in 1998 and I was just recently diagnosed with diabetes and high cholesterol. So we are private pay on everything – doctors, medicine, hospital stays etc.
During May 1-7, 2006 thousands of activities will take place across the United States to tell Congress that health coverage for Americans must be their top priority.
Alec and I are planning to go to the May 5th “2006 Gala Celebration Breakfast” in Lacey Washington (right next to Olympia.)
