A Dexter resident battling leukemia has been invited to accompany 7th District Congressman Tim Walberg’s guest at President Obama’s State of the Union Address on Tuesday.

The president addresses the nation at 9 p.m. Tuesday

Julie Boonstra has been fighting leukemia for five years, but lost her insurance because of the president’s signature Affordable Health Care Act, Walberg, a Tipton Republican, said in a news release.

“I am honored to have Julie as my guest to the State of the Union this year,” he said. “She has been through a lot with her health and insurance problems and deserves to hear what the president has to say on the matter.”

Walberg thinks the Affordable Care Act, commonly known as Obamacare, should be repealed.

“My hope is that soon we can put this harmful law behind us and replace it with patient-centered solutions that promote consumer choice, decrease health-care costs and improve access to quality care,” he said.
