Honoring her brother's memory with Eric's Law

Since TV Guide reporter Veronica De La Cruz lost her brother in July 2009, she has carried his story from coast to coast hoping Eric’s life and struggle would move people to understand the urgency and necessity of real health care reform.

When does she breathe?

She is hoping to get 500 signatures by the end of today on a petition that lobbies Congress for meaningful reform, one that includes a public option and prohibits discrimination based on preexisting conditions.

Forty-five thousand people die for lack of insurance each year under our present system, and polls indicate support for the public option has never been greater.  Americans must not let Congress leave people at the mercy of the same insurance companies that deny care and claims now.

Please sign here.

  1. Wow. Thank you so much for writing about this Mel, you are amazing! My Mom and I appreciate your support. Let’s see some change in Eric’s honor and for all Americans. I know we can do it. I know we can.

    • Thank you, Vee. I will rally the crew tonight when everybody’s home. My family alone ought to put a dent in the remaining signatures. 🙂

    • Thanks so much, 0whole1! I’ll put your links on my facebook. Are you on facebook? If you are, friend me. 🙂

      (Sorry about the delay. Links flag me to have to manually approve a comment.)

  2. I don’t normally sign petitions, but I did this one for you…

    Here’s what I said:

    We the people of the United States, in order to perform a more perfect union, demand passage of a strong health care reform bill — one that includes a public option and prohibits discrimination based on preexisting conditions. If you do not pass this, you will be voted out of office, you sleaze bags.
