Dozens of protesters gathered outside of Sen. Dean Heller's office Tuesday, asking him to vote no on the latest health care bill.

Protesters said they are fighting for millions of Nevadans who could lose their health care under the proposed GOP bill, including Laura Packard, a stage 4 cancer patient who made a viral video to get Heller's attention.

Her friends were among those at the Tuesday event near Sunset Road and the 215, as was musician Jon "Bowser" Bauman.
