Mike Smith considers himself lucky. When, at age 21, he discovered a golf ball-sized tumor in his neck, he had health coverage and a support system to support him.

“I was lucky because it was only stage 2A when I was diagnosed,” said Smith, now 35, of Milford. “I was lucky that my mother worked at a job that offered quality health insurance. Otherwise, I’d still be crawling out of the nearly million dollars in medical care needed to keep me alive. But we must not leave the health and financial fortunes of our family, friends and neighbors to chance.”
