Do people actually lose their homes to pay for health care in the US, or is this an urban myth?

Basically, I am doing some comparisons of the US vs. Canadian style single-payer health systems. What I can't find are real, documented cases of people being driven to bankruptcy and/or losing their home due to health care costs.
Does this really happen, or is it just a myth? What I would like are links to real stories of individuals who have lost everything due to health expenses, if they actually exist.
