WATCH: Pastor Confronts Republican Senator with Heart-Wrenching Story About How Obamacare Saved Her Daughter
According to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, Senate Republicans' new health care bill would leave 22 million Americans uninsured over the course of a decade through its repeal of the Affordable Care Act.
Janice Hill's daughter, Amy, is one of them. Amy would have died without Obamacare.
"She's hanging in there," Hill told CNN's Don Lemon about her cancer-stricken daughter late Monday. "Every kind of treatment that she's been on since her diagnosis four years ago has been experimental, so [treatments] will work for a while and then they'll stop working... they're just learning all the time."
Hill, a pastor in West Virginia, spoke with Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV) at a town hall on Friday, where she urged the senator to vote no on the new bill.
"She's 41 years old," Hill said, showing photographs of Amy before and after she was diagnosed. "She's been fighting this cancer for four years, very diligently, maintained her job, has gotten promotions, has led teams, as sick as she has been."
"She would not be alive today if it wasn't for the ACA," Hill told Capito.
"Do you think that [Capito] really understood your situation?" Lemon later asked the pastor.
Hill was unsure.
"I think she listened to what I had to say, but... that is not something that gives me a lot of comfort," Hill said. "I want her to act on it, because it's not just my daughter... Amy is one of thousands and millions of people that his horrible, immoral bill is going to affect."
