How crazy it is to me that my “I am ObamaCare” image has gone so viral. Especially three months after initially posting it! The other day, it made it’s way onto MoveOn.org and today, it’s on DailyDot.com
You can read the article here.
I’m amazed and excited to find my simple image is making such huge political waves. That’s amazing. I hope it helps change some people’s minds on the topic of heath care reform in this country.
Just a small plug…while PCIP has been a lifesaver to me, I still have over $10,000 in co-pays and medical bills. I’m desperately trying to pay each provider something every month but I was laid off from my job because they would not hold the position while I recovered from surgery.
So I rely on my small jewelry business right now for my income. I also have a donation link to help with my bills. If even a 1/4 of the people who share this image and story donated a single dollar, I could easily pay off all my medical bills.
Anyway, thanks for reading and sharing!!

Hysterectomy FundOctober 2013 Update: Happy 2 Year Anniversary!! I'm amazed at how different life is two years later. Though the hardest thing I've ever been through in my life, I've grown so much as a result of having overcome such terrifying and daunting medical issues. In a weird way, I'm better for having experienced these hardships. I'm more sure of myself these days and more confident I can face life's challenges better.
I have tried to turn this medical challenge into an opportunity and using this as a means to push forward with my small jewelry business and as a way to support myself again.
Your continued support is appreciated right now and even links to my shop are appreciated. Thank you to everyone who's helped and spread the word. All of you helped make it possible for me to be here and healthy.
