What killed Jennifer Lyon?
Meet Jennifer Lyon, age 37. She died a couple of weeks ago. Her killer: not having health insurance.
How can I know that? You are right. I don't. But she made a decision as so many people do, not to go to the doctor because it's too expensive, because they don't have insurance. She found a lump and didn't see a doctor until another one appeared.
I guess we'll never know what would have happened had she seen a doctor right away, had she had health insurance.
Tell your U.S. Senator, in Jennifer's name, to pass health care reform.

Thanks to Marisa Sanders who passed this on to me. It's about an actor who didn't seek proper treatment because he didn't have health insurance.
