Brenda M., CA

Hello, I’m a 54-year-old married lady with three older children. My entire family has preexisting conditions. I was diagnosed with asthma at age 23 and have since relied on singular, albuterol, Pulmicort, nasal spray and zytrec to keep my lungs clear and healthy.

This is very hard to do when medications are hundreds of dollars a month. Before the Affordable Care Act I had to choose between food and medication and would hope I didn’t get a cold or the flu, which with medications, usually takes four to six weeks to recover from.

The ACA has changed my life and my family’s life. It keeps us healthy, happy and working.
