NEW YORK, Oct. 23 -- First Lady Michelle Obama will be speaking to the women of America
"No matter which side you're on, health care is central to our vast audience of highly engaged women and moms," said Jodi Kahn, Executive Vice President, iVillage. "This is a huge opportunity for our community to have their personal questions about health care answered directly by Secretary Sebelius."
In the video posted today, Mrs. Obama shares a personal story about how her daughter, Sasha, was rushed to the hospital eight years ago over an illness, and how difficult a situation like that could be if a family was not able to afford quality health care. Secretary Sebelius advocates for Health Care Reform and talks about how women can be discriminated against by insurance companies. The video also includes a testimonial from a breast and lung cancer survivor who is forced to choose between screening tests and keeping her home because of the high cost of treatment.
