When I got sick, I was a 19-year-old kid who never had to think about my health, or insurance, or politics.

But that all changed when, after two years of MRIs and CAT scans, dozens of doctors' visits, and a week-long stay in a hospital, I was diagnosed with Behcet's Disease, a very rare auto-immune condition.

I was lucky though. Thanks to my parents' health insurance, I got the care I needed.

Now, because of the Affordable Care Act, I can stay on my parents' insurance until I'm 26, so I can focus on getting my post-grad life in order, instead of worrying about how I'll pay for my health.

Obamacare isn't just a law for me, or for the 6.6 million other young Americans who were able to sign up on their parents' plans because of the law.

It's good health. Financial security. My future.

Obamacare is just one of many things worth fighting for in this election -- sign up to volunteer to re-elect President Obama.

When Mitt Romney promises to repeal Obamacare his first day in office, he's saying he'll take away health insurance from millions of young Americans like me. Romney doesn't understand the challenges facing young people today -- and it's not like he's going to immediately figure it out if he's elected.

My health care -- and my life -- are too important to me to hand over to someone who'd put them in jeopardy, either because he doesn't recognize the consequences of doing so, or because he simply doesn't get it.

If you're with me -- if you want to protect your access to health insurance, no matter your health condition or employment status -- sign up to volunteer today for the candidate who has our backs:
