Montel Williams breaks down in tears over daughter’s battle with cancer while at health care rally
Montel Williams spoke up about her daughter's condition at a health care rally, speaking passionately about how he is against health care reform.
As previously discovered and interviewed by The Blast, the former talk show host attended the "Protect Our Care Nationwide Bus Tour" last Monday in Miami, which is a multi-state tour that aimed to rally voters against the new Republican change to health care.
After a 12,000-mile tour that had 49 stops in 24 states, Williams joined the event's final stop in Miami. He recently suffered a hemorrhagic stroke, which has him realize the importance of having good health care laws in a country, especially to those who are not as fortunate.
Likewise, Montel's daughter, Maressa, has been surviving two bouts of lymphoma, and this was all made possible by being able to receive medical care through his insurance given by the Affordable Care Act.
The host couldn't help but fight back the tears when he explained that he registered as a Republican while he served in the Navy, but now needs to consider himself as an Independent given that they have not been aligned with his morals and values. Instead, he votes for all those who "can't speak for themselves".

Had a normal family suffered this kind of catastrophic medical issue, they would be not just poor, but living on the street." #ProtectOurCare #CareForceOne pic.twitter.com/PQYocL50XL— Protect Our Care (@ProtectOurCare) October 31, 2018
It was just a couple of weeks ago that Williams revealed that he had a stroke while working out at a gym in New York City in June. Although he wanted to keep the situation private at first, he eventually revealed that he did indeed spend 21 days in the hospital trying to recover.
Now that he is up and running, he has been living his best life, especially since he thinks that he is having a "second chance" to live. Aside from trying to stay fit and healthy, he's decided to spend his time rallying for causes that he feels are important in America, especially for those whom he says "can't speak for themselves".
