  • She was 18 and had a stroke. Now she fears Medicaid cuts

    Ashley Boyer was 18 years old, enjoying herself with a carefree game of bowling. She clutched her head with a crippling headache and woke up two weeks later in the hospital, a victim of a stroke. As a Missouri resident, her years-long rehabilitation therapy was covered under Medicaid.
