My daughter Zoe was born with a congenital heart defect that required her to have multiple open heart surgeries in the first few months of her life. By the time she was six months old, she had already reached over half of her lifetime insurance cap, which would have left us unable to pay for the continuing care and future surgeries required for Zoe to survive.

I can't tell you how relieved I was when Obamacare passed. I got a letter from our insurance company telling us that Zoe's lifetime cap had been removed. It meant my family wouldn't have to lose everything to keep my daughter alive.

And the Republicans want to take this away?

There is just so much on the line in this election. The best thing we can do right now is give President Obama and other Democrats the resources they need to win in 54 days.

Please chip in $X or more today.

Mitt Romney and the Republicans say that if they win on November 6th, they'll repeal Obamacare on Day One. That means that millions of Americans -- including children like Zoe, who have already overcome insurmountable odds -- stand to lose the coverage they need to stay healthy.

The stakes are incredibly high, and incredibly personal. And I, for one, can't sit by while the Republicans threaten my daughter's health and my family's well-being -- and I hope you can't, either.

Donate $X or more today to protect Obamacare and help Democrats fight in these last weeks of their campaigns:

Thank you so much for fighting,
