You may have heard this story before:
Tyler, from Beaverton, Oregon, had to choose between paying his rent and buying asthma medication. At age 27, he was married and had a five-year old son. Tyler was diagnosed with asthma when he was two years old. After he lost his job and health insurance, he cut back on his asthma medication because paying his rent and buying food for his family took priority. In December 2010, he suffered a severe asthma attack, was hospitalized in a coma, and died shortly thereafter. Tyler is among 43,000 people in the US who prematurely die every year from untreated illnesses due to financial barriers to health care. Unfortunately Tyler and thousands other people who died needlessly for lack of health care are not here to tell their stories.
But you, who have suffered due to lack of health care for a dozen different reasons, have a story to tell!
