"Sen. Bernie Sanders reunited Monday with a veteran who garnered headlines after telling the presidential candidate he was contemplating suicide due to being saddled with $139,000 in medical debt.

The Naval Air Force veteran, named John Weigel, told the Vermont senator and a crowd of attendees at a campaign-sponsored town hall in September that he didn’t know how he would pay for compounding medical debt for the treatment of Huntington’s disease.

"I can’t. I can’t. I’m gonna kill myself," Weigel told Sanders in their first encounter.

"Hold on, John, stop it, you’re not gonna kill yourself," Sanders replied.

Nearly three months later, Weigel attended another Sanders event to report that his medical debt was now under control. He said that he was now only paying $29.50 per month.

"Because of your support, Sens. [Catherine] Cortez-Masto and Jacky Rosen got involved and straightened out my bills," Weigel told Sanders and the crowd in Gardnerville, Nevada. "
