Thankful

Dear Senator Collins (and McCain),

My seven year old son Caleb has cystic fibrosis and I want to THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for being one of the few Republican voices of reason in the current debate on healthcare. Thank you for helping defeat the recent attempts to remove protections for people with pre-existing conditions. 

As you know, lifetime limits and annual caps would be devastating to people living with CF. With preventative care (including Kalydeco, the miracle-drug that has changed our lives), my precious son has the chance to grow up and reach his full potential. Without it, he will surely die a tragically early death. THANK YOU for helping ensure my child has a chance to pursue LIFE in this great nation of ours. 

Although I am a resident of Georgia (and greatly discouraged by the lack of support we are getting from our senators and house representatives), I am encouraged by your courageous refusal to vote the "party line" when our party is getting it so very, very wrong these days. YOU and politicians of character like you are the reason I can sleep at night, hoping for a better tomorrow. 

With DEEPEST and HEARTFELT THANKS, 

Caleb's Mom
