Trumpcare is just around the corner and already many Americans are afraid that their health care prices will go through the roof. A mom from New Jersey wanted to take a stand against the pending changes by sharing the crazy hospital bills she has to pay each month for her chronically ill son. She has taken the internet by storm since she shared her powerful story on Twitter.
When Chandra was still pregnant with young Ethan she found out that he has a very rare disease called heterotaxy syndrome, which causes his vital organs to be arranged abnormally. In addition he had several heart defects and had to undergo several open heart surgeries, the first one just 6 days after he was born. So far most of Ethan`s medical needs a covered by her insurance, but with the new health plan on the way, things might take a wrong turn.
“Lifetime cap” is one of the most damaging laws proposed by the new Trumpcare bill, which puts limit on how much money can be spent on one person. These limits were removed by the Obama`s administration, but they are now back on the table posing a direct threat to Ethan`s life and others like him.
“A lifetime cap on benefits is the same as saying, “Sorry, you’re not worth keeping alive anymore. You’re just too expensive,”- Chandra wrote on Twitter.
Chandra received more than 53.000 thousand retweets and more than 80.000 likes on her photo of her last hospital invoice. Many Americans identified with her concerns and stood in solidarity.
