About this Website


Gunner James Hawkins was born on January 30, 2009. On March 17, Gunner was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis (CF). The diagnosis came as a complete shock to our family since none of our relatives have ever been diagnosed with this genetic disease.

During the 2008 presidential election, the issue of reforming U.S. healthcare was highly debated. Since the election, the current Presidential Administration and Congress have moved rapidly to change healthcare in the United States. After Gunner’s diagnosis in March, we started researching what a nationalized healthcare plan would mean for Gunner and his CF treatment. What we found was alarming and it’s is the reason for the creation of this website.

No one is focusing on what nationalized healthcare would mean for individuals with chronic, life-threatening diseases.

It’s time we change the debate.


Why Nationalized Healthcare is Wrong for Gunner.
