Joseph S :
I am a lung cancer survivor. In 2013 I was diagnosed with an advanced stage of lung cancer. My treatment included chemotherapy, surgery and radiation, and cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. It enabled me to return to normal life with no evidence of disease. The health care system in our country is the best in the world I am blessed to have good health insurance that provides me and my family access to quality health care. In our country's health care and political system I now possess the curse of having a pre-existing condition. I worry about losing access to health care because of this. In a country as great as the United States access to quality health care should be a basic right and not a political debate.
