My mom has diabetes. She struggles with it on a daily basis and the effects of this disease have added to her health problems. She has insurance now...but has been told several times, point blank, that she's uninsurable because of her medical history. Talk about a "death panel"...being told you are not worth coverage & being unable to afford the care you need to LIVE is just that. I support Health Reform for many reasons but especially because of it's efforts to stop the practice of denying coverage due to preexisting conditions.
