I'm an asthmatic freelance bookkeeper so I didn't have insurance until January 2015. I used the ER when I had a bad asthma attack. August 2016 at 39 years old I found a lump, and September 9 got the call that I had breast cancer. An aggressive form called Her2+ which has a very high recurrence rate. I did chemo then had a mastectomy, they also found thyroid cancer so that was removed too during all this. March 8 2017 I got the call that I am cancer free, for now, but I still get Herceptin infusions every 3 weeks to reduce recurrence chances. I need these treatments or it's likely to come back! The ACA has literally SAVED MY LIFE!
