Teresa Lemieux
Hometown: Overland Park, Kansas

I was an occupational therapist working full time in the field of developmental disabilities across the life span from 1976 to 2005. I was diagnosed with MS in 1984. I worked all those years with health care provided by my husband's business. I got divorced in 2007 and had to go on disability so I could have Medicare health insurance. I have always done volunteering and still do as much as I can. I know I will need long term health insurance. I would have paid for private health care....but I was turned down because of my preexisting condition.
