She is actually her breast cancers in remission fantastic news that you sad day.
This -- if you were diagnosed a year from now.
You're story might be different based on the care that is going to be provided by a bomb cracked well they really where will.
Obama care takes a disproportionate.
Hit on cancer patients and if you look breast cancer one out of eight women diagnosed with that in our lifetime.
We have the longest survival rates -- their earliest thing diagnosis rates because of mammogram.
While Obama care has panels.
And task forces which have changed that very recommendations.
To the scary part a case we'll look at what's happening with -- here in the changes that are gonna take place it hits me hard on the family breast cancer.
On every running back Sammy had it -- probably gonna come my way so I'm a little heated about this.
I'm talk about the changes the restrictions now.
The American cancer society and the state.
Of -- it's been have a mammogram every year starting at age forty.
While this task force came in without a single breast cancer specialist on it and said don't even start your mammograms LH fifty and then every other year until 74 and then stop.
What's really surprising is that a steady recently showed that these younger women have a higher death rate it's -- young women have kids at home their active professionally.
And particularly African American women are the most commonly -- this young age group.
And no more likely to die breast cancer.
And now we have -- recommendations.
Not even to get the mammograms and we know that delaying your diagnosis increases your chances of dying from capsule look.
Ali here's early diagnosis and -- -- find utterly live longer peaks exactly what is so we're talking about restriction on on the mammogram screenings and at age 74 and he what do you -- 75 years old.

-- far greater exactly in an -- and in the cast -- team going into other areas of the body delayed diagnosis and doctor shortage can you can you talk a little bit about well the way and it obamacare is structured it's really based on -- and cents.
Where there's a certain amount of money and the hospitals and the doctors.
Our able to keep more than money by withholding care and what's really sad is that the selective delays particularly for cancer patients are very ominous.
They recently delayed the cap on on top cop pocket expenses so.
Chemotherapy agents cancer drugs are very very expensive there and now there's no limit on the out of pocket expenses.
And now the limitations in terms of the actual treatments and payments I mean this is this seems like -- -- is in.
We have a doctor shortage coming had a -- right -- cancer treatment limitations and they also note.
-- did -- correctly there was no breast cancer specialist on -- panel that made on exactly exactly this is what is so sad we're really at a turning point in the time the cancer we could have.
Look we're looking for a cure.
And instead of being able to go to the specialists that we want to go to were restricted to have very limited number of doctors and hospitals.
And it becomes more about cost savings -- -- savings.
And we also have a problem with failing to be able to recruit the best and brightest and the medicine now that would come up with a cure.
We're taxing innovation we're delaying technology.
Giving money to hospitals and taking away from drug developers and all of these things would -- -- the -- of us with cancer hope for an actual cure but instead of doing that.
Obama care is limiting all the things that would lead lead us to go ahead.
And beat this disease that affects so many in our country.
Doctor -- now I want to thank you for being with us today sent -- -- battle cry and I hope that we can get more women like you with success stories in their health but with this plan ahead.
