Proud Michigander, Linda Pfeifer has faced her fair share of health challenges. Not only is she a type 2 diabetic, but she also suffers from diabetic retinopathy, an eye condition that has caused vision loss and could eventually lead to blindness, and renal failure, which has caused kidney damage and led to high blood pressure.
Linda feels fortunate to have access to medications that help her manage her conditions on a daily basis, but she is still holding out hope a cure will one day be discovered.
What concerns Linda the most at the moment is price-setting legislation. She worries that if the federal government were to be empowered to set the prices of medications, it could jeopardize her ability to access her prescriptions and significantly dimmish the chances a cure will be discovered.
