WISE, VIRGINIA-JULY 24: Leslie Freeman and Steve Henry from Sullivan, Tennessee wait to see dentists and opticians at the Remote Area Medical (RAM) Expedition event at the Virginia-Kentucky Fairgrounds.  Both are disabled. Leslie wrote a letter to President Obama while waiting in her car overnight for the gates to open saying, "Something needs to be done [about health care]....this isn't the America I know." She doesn't know what the answer is, but hopes that everyone just gets what they need. Henry believes "there's no excuse for it [the lack of care]".
