Earlier this week, we received incredibly sad news. Melanie Shouse, a devoted MoveOn Council leader in St. Louis and tireless health care advocate, passed away after a battle with breast cancer.
Melanie was a true fighter. While she was involved in many issues with MoveOn, she always said health care was her heart—and even after treatments began, she came to every single health care rally, speaking out about the injustices she was suffering under our broken health care system.
Melanie's story is a painful reminder of why we need to fight as hard as we can to get real health care reform passed, now.
Our friends at TrueMajority are gathering messages of condolence to deliver to Melanie's family this weekend. The email they sent is below. To add your message, just click this link.
Thanks for all that you do.
