Faye M. Graham spoke at a rally sponsored by the ARHealth+ARJobs coalition on the steps of the state Capitol in Little Rock on March 7, 2013, in support of a developing plan to expand access to affordable health care coverage for uninsured and lower-income Arkansans. Ms. Graham says she earned two college degrees, currently works three jobs, has been diagnosed with multiple forms of cancer, but can't afford health care coverage. Other speakers at the rally included Gov. Mike Beebe, state Sen. Jonathan Dismang, R-Searcy, and several representatives of the health care profession. ARHealth+ARJobs is a broad coalition including AARP Arkansas and multiple organizations dedicated to improving the health of Arkansans.
