I have never met Natoma Canfield, but I am unlikely to forget her story.

Natoma is a woman with cancer who had dutifully paid her health insurance premiums over the years she was healthy but then could no longer afford them when she became sick, and they increased. Ultimately, she lost coverage.

Natoma’s story was the one U.S. President Barack Obama relayed on the historic day that the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act was upheld by the Supreme Court.
