Supreme Court Upholds Vital Patient Protections

Advocacy activities with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society have played a significant role in gathering support among legislators, the public, and health care workers to rally and educate people about what was at risk if we lost medical coverage due to preconditions.

Many of us can now breathe a sigh of relief.

I am donating the net profit from two of my books, see the announcement, to help support the many services, financial aid, and advocacy that the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society does daily for so many people.

Today is a win for blood cancer patients, caregivers, advocates and everyonein the cancer community. With today’s ruling, the Supreme Court – yet again – upholds the vital patient protections contained in the landmark health law.

Patients now know with certainty: the critical protections they rely upon are here to stay.

You now have peace of mind and know that legitimate health insurance can’t discriminate against you for having a pre-existing condition, as so many plans could prior to ACA.

We won’t return to a time when cancer patients and survivors could be charged more for being sick – or denied coverage altogether.
Important policies that made health coverage more affordable for millions of people will remain.”
