I’m a retired woman, caregiver for disabled husband, relying on Social Security and Medicare; volunteer as tutor, hospital visitor, to end/ease homelessness, on behalf of vets, and in political action. Native southerner, lived in North and West of US, and Abroad, back in the South for this century. I’m a churchlady, mother of two young adult daughters. In spite of everything, still have hope.
My husband and I are deeply grateful for Medicare A, B, D and supplemental ins. We’ve both had surgeries (major and minor) and my husband has been rushed to ER numerous times due to diabetic coma (complicated by heart failure and muscular dystrophy). I had emergency open heart surgery. He needs insulin and heart meds. Without Medicare, we’d be dead or destitute, then dead. We are not the only ones and many have more grievous burdens than ours. We want to see Social Security and Medicare saved and strengthened.
Among many issues, health care is a stand out for me. I want to learn more about how to preserve and strengthen access to health care for all Americans.
