ACCESS TO HEALTHCARE
Vince knows firsthand about what access to healthcare means. At the age of four, Vince had open-heart surgery at the Medical University of South Carolina. Born with congenital heart disease, Vince's life could have ended prematurely for lack of access to healthcare. Vince's story went differently only because his parents were able to purchase employer-based health insurance. Vince will use his life and experience to advocate for affordable healthcare as well as health insurance regardless of pre-existing conditions.
