Hello Barbara and thanks so much for the mention (in Heart Sisters) - of the tragic heart attack death of Melissa Mia Hall in Texas last month. I didn't even know Melissa. And she is just one of over 45,000 people whose deaths each year, according to a 2009 Harvard University study, are directly attributable to being uninsured. But for some reason her story has galvanized many of us heart attack survivors in ways that few heart stories can.

Thanks for helping to spread the word about Melissa.

Cheers,

C.
