Dear Editor:

I am a 22-year-old college student facing graduation and the start of my life. I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease ten years ago but have been in remission for the last eight thanks to a very expensive drug, Remicade. Health insurance is still a pressing concern in my life, but now I have so many more assurances thanks to Obamacare. I know that I can never be denied insurance for having a pre-existing condition or reach cost ceilings. I can breathe easier knowing that I can stay on my parent’s plan until 26.
