In 2007, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. And in 2008, right before the Democratic convention, I had one of seven surgeries I'd have in that year.

Today, I'm a survivor -- but like every survivor, I now have a pre-existing condition. And although I fought and won the toughest battle of my life to beat breast cancer, I could have been denied insurance coverage because of that battle. Now, thanks to Obamacare, millions of Americans like me won't have to worry about going without care because of a pre-existing condition. We can focus on staying healthy.

All this week at our convention, elected officials and everyday Americans have been standing up and sharing how President Obama's policies have profoundly affected their lives. If we don't double down on our efforts to win on Election Day, the other side has made it their mission to roll it all back.

Chip in $X or more today to support Democrats and protect Obamacare and everything else we've fought for.

For me, for President Obama, and for millions of Americans, this election is personal.

Every time Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, and other Republicans say that they'll repeal Obamacare on Day One, I take it personally.

They just don't get it -- this isn't about politics. It's about keeping ourselves and our families healthy and financially secure.

It's so important for us to do everything we can to give Democrats the resources they need to win two months from tonight -- there's just too much at stake not to.

Before President Obama steps on stage tonight to accept our nomination for president for the last time, let him know you're ready to keep on fighting for progress.
