compassion after a lifetime of hard work
"The doctor told me that I had lung cancer and was dying," says Sandy Hepler of Jackson County, Tennessee. "With the help of the Tennessee Health Care Campaign, I was able to qualify for SSI and get TennCare and needed treatment. Months and maybe years have been added to my life. There is more work that I must do before I die. To me, TennCare is the embodiment of compassion. I am so grateful that TennCare would help an old man like me. TennCare has saved my life."
Sandy has worked all his life and is thankful that he was able to get TennCare and that it provided him the insurance he needed to get medical care. Getting TennCare made the difference for Sandy.
