I am extremely thankful that I am able to have this surgery next week with one of the best surgeons. I am grateful for a chance at a new chapter in my life. I am grateful that I have health insurance and that I have a husband who is supporting me through a costly surgery.
Many people in the US don't have access to affordable health care and I know this first hand because most of my life I didn't have health care. Not only that, but many of my friends and family don't have health care either. I hope that one day everyone will have access to health care, because there is nothing more important than your health.
Our country is arguable the richest country in the world, but we are by far not the healthiest country and our not living the longest either. My wish is that all my friends and family, all the children, and all the elderly can be happy and healthy.
