2015 Story Collection:
During the 2015 Missouri Legislative Session, we compiled the stories of real Missourians to share with our legislators in Jefferson City.
We shared the story of LaDonna and Tom. Their Marketplace plan has saved them from financial disaster. LaDonna was diagnosed with breast cancer and Tom had surgery on his hand shortly after the new policy went into effect. “To say that the Marketplace was a lifesaver for us would be an understatement.”
We also shared the story of Arielle, who survived the devastating Joplin tornado. Arielle is working part-time, going to school full-time, while care for her two young sons – one who has severe disabilities and autism. Medical coverage through Medicaid Expansion would give Arielle security and peace of mind as she works hard for a good education to provide for her family.
