This article first appeared in the St. Louis Beacon, June 29, 2012 - Lisa Hill of Wildwood has a 17-year-old son with more health conditions than most people struggle with in a life time. He has coped with autism, epilepsy and leukemia. Hill says she has had no good place to turn for health insurance. But she felt hopeful on Thursday morning upon hearing that the Supreme Court had upheld the Affordable Care Act.
"The Supreme Court decided to allow my son to live," she said. "If his leukemia were to ever come back, it can be treated. That's what (the decision) means."
