started a petition on Change.org last month because my mom’s health
insurance company was not authorizing coverage for chemotherapy
treatment at the hospital she had been going to for months.
more than 187,000 of you signed my petition, I have good news -- we
were finally able to get Total Health Care and the University of
Michigan hospital to work with us to commit to covering my mom’s health
It's been a very
emotional few weeks, but it's amazing to feel this love. My mom and I
were just sitting there reading through your comments on the petition
watching the signatures go up. We know we can count on you if the
insurance company or hospital go back on their promise to us.
I have signed hundreds of petitions for people, animals, the environment, net neutrality, and human rights, etc. I will continue to do so because I know that public opinion holds enormous sway over the minds of those in power. It always has and it always will.
