The dying campaigner fighting for health reform

Ady Barkan can't speak without a computer - but is a leading voice in US politics
In 2016, just after the birth of his son, Ady Barkan was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease - known as ALS in the United States. In the following years, he's lost the use of his body and voice - but he's determined to continue to fight for healthcare for all. He's now one of the most influential campaigners in America.
