CHARLOTTE, NC - An Arizona woman spoke at the Democratic National Convention in North Carolina about the impact of health care reform on her family.
Stacey Lihn addressed the convention Tuesday night in Charlotte and spoke about her daughter Zoe, who was born with a heart defect but can now get the care she needs.
At 6 months old, Zoe was halfway to her lifetime cap. But because the Affordable Care Act prohibits health plans from setting a lifetime dollar limit on most benefits, Zoe can now live a life without limits.
Lihn and her husband have been taking their daughter to The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia for treatment.
She was diagnosed in utero with hypoplastic left heart syndrome. It's fatal without early intervention and requires three open-heart surgeries over several years.
