Leaving For Health Care

President Obama is on the road, promoting health care reform before Congress goes on August recess. That issue is of utmost importance to Barbara Calder. She's been unable to qualify for health insurance since she was diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, a rare genetic disease. Now, Barbara is hoping to sell her home in Colorado and move her family abroad. As she tells Dick Gordon, having the disease has changed her view of health care in the U.S. As a dual citizen, she thinks she'll be able to get better care in Belgium. This story originally aired on October 22, 2008.
