Nancy bringing me water along the roadside east of Gomer, Ohio
Originally uploaded by walk4healthcare
Nancy is 60, without work and without health insurance. She has recently moved in with her mother. She has two prescriptions which cost her $140 a month and works odd jobs to pay for one of these. She lives ‘one day at a time’ and hopes that there’ll be healthcare reform, “So people like me can get the prescriptions we need.”
We met on a porch in Gomer (she was helping to clean up someone’s home) where she brought me some juice. Here she is on the roadside near Lima, later that afternoon, bringing me a glass of water as she was driving to her mother’s place.
