In March of 2003, Wanda Rohl suffered serious injuries, including a catastrophic spinal injury, during an ATV accident that left her paralyzed for life from the rib cage down.  No longer able to work, Wanda lost her health insurance and had no choice but to rely entirely on virtually every aspect of our social safety net system to stay alive, sustain her family and ultimately endure months of surgeries and rehabilitation.  

Wanda’s video, “Government Programs Work,” may not be pretty, but neither is what Wanda and millions of other uninsured Americans suffer through each year.  Wanda created this video in the hope that her story of survival would not only give hope to those just beginning their struggle, but that it would move others to join the fight to save and strengthen America’s precious social safety net.  It’s also one of the key reasons why Wanda has taken the bold step to run for Congress.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
