Mom on Mission for Quality, Affordable Healthcare for All Drives Purple Bus Across Nation Gathering Stories
Date:6/15/2009

gton is by collecting stories of people's heartbreak and frustration when insurance companies use fine print and loopholes to deny care.

"Though Washington politicians and moneyed special interests debate the future of our healthcare," said McClure, "as a concerned mother I know that meaningful reform that achieves quality, affordable healthcare for all will not happen without citizens' overwhelming support."

McClure has met countless Americans who, like her, demand that lawmakers put asides partisan differences and find real solutions. "My journey has taught me that I am not alone in this fight," she said. Just a fraction of those she's met include:

  • Jackie, a Persian Gulf veteran who struggles to find basic, preventive care for her kindergarten age son in La Grande, Oregon;
  • Dan, an unemployed construction worker from Bothell, Washington, diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes weeks after losing his coverage;
  • Wendy, a hard working 52-year-old organic farmer in Nampa, Idaho, who is too young for Medicare but can no longer afford the premiums for her railroad retiree health benefits.

McClure's next stops are in Lincoln and Omaha, Nebraska on June 16 and Des Moines and Davenport, Iowa on June 17 and 18, then on to Washington, DC's Freedom Plaza on June 24.
