Pre-teen worries about health reform

Editor, My name is Chantai Thomas. I am 12 years old and live in Ludowici. I have an 8-year-old sister named Chyrish. My mother is physically disabled because of a car accident and my sister and I live with our disabled grandparents. My grandmother, Cynthia, is 58 and has major back troubles. She is almost unable to walk. Her legs and back cause her great pain and she is going to have surgery to fix her problems. I fear that under the new health-care plan, her insurance will not cover the costs of her surgery.
