ORLANDO, Fla. —

A woman combating cancer said she now has to fight another battle – keeping her insurance.

Jay and Gloria Canter are fighting Gloria's cancer battle together.

Gloria Canter has five brain tumors and tumors in her bones.

They have another battle to fight -- trying to keep their health insurance.

The Canters received a letter in the mail explaining Gloria's health insurance will end next summer due to the Affordable Care Act.

After promises from President Barack Obama, the Canters said they feel betrayed.

"This letter makes more problems for us that we don't need at this moment," Gloria said.

"This came on us like a ton of bricks," her husband Jay Canter said.

After the insurance company drops them it will offer them a different plan which it admits will be more expensive.

The Canters are especially worried because their doctors cannot assure them that M.D. Anderson Cancer Center will still accept the new plan.

"We don't know what's going to happen," Jay Canter said.

It's one worry they feel they did not need to have.
