Kelly Folkers advocates to end medical debt

Video: Why Kelly Folkers fights to end medical debt!

We asked Kelly Folkers why is ending medical debt so important? A year of taking care of a sick family member has given her a unique perspective and a passion to protect other families.

Kelly expresses the difficulties of navigating the health care system when someone you love has a complex and long term condition. It’s difficult to keep up with insurers, providers, and even your own family at times. Even after an exhausting year, Kelly feels lucky that her family isn’t facing financial ruin. Her experience has shown her, that many other families aren’t so lucky. She joined us to help support the ending of medical debt.
