During his speech before Congress on Tuesday night, Donald Trump called on Congress to address the "imploding Obamacare disaster." "Tonight, I am also calling on this Congress to repeal and replace Obamacare with reforms that expand choice, increase access, lower costs and at the same time provide better healthcare," Trump said. "Mandating every American to buy government-approved health insurance was never the right solution for America."

She is a cancer survivor who has also had a kidney and heart transplant.
