Sometimes you need more than a good night's sleep
Jaime shared her story with us:
"Every time I get sick, I get you know... If it can't be fixed with Advil, NyQuil and a good night's sleep I don't really have a solution for it.
Between all of the obligations I already have like utilities and rent and student loan payments, within my budget, there's no way I can afford health care.
If something bad happened to me... if I were in an accident or if I developed some kind of serious illness, there's no possible way I could afford it."
