Product Overview

"HEARTBEAT" is the riveting story of a dying LA librarian who sues the U.S. Congress in a Supreme Court case demanding health care access for America''s 45 million uninsured.

Sometimes no matter how hard she tried, there were tough choices to be made-choices between her heart pills and paying the mortgage, her diabetic pills or electricity in her home, her blood pressure pills or food on the table, her cholesterol pills or the phone bill. Somehow, however, with careful budgeting, Dr. Rosen''s good will, and the grace of God, she managed to get by, except on those days when the mailman brought another agency collection notice. When those bad moments occurred, she mailed a small payment to get the agency off her back, and she would firmly inform her heart, diabetes, blood pressure and cholesterol that they would have to simply make do with a little less that day.

There are currently over 45 million Americans without health insurance. Over 18,000 Americans without health care access die annually. Over two million uninsured Americans declare medical bankruptcy every year. "HEARTBEAT" is their story.
