LONG: My mom taught me to work hard. She was a really good role model because she had worked hard all of her life. I was at school. My dad called and said she had died. It was shocking. She had just turned 43 years old. They did an autopsy, and, you know, she had lung cancer. The thing I remember about it is she was afraid to see a doctor. She knew how expensive it could be and how hard it would be on the family. I think every American should have access to affordable care. It's the number one issue that I'm running on. I'm Carolyn Long and I approve this message.
