I will never forget the nights I spent in the hospital next door to Faith in Emily's room listening to her mom stressing over all of the medical bills. Their insurance had capped off and they were going to be responsible for the rest of their dying daughter's care. She was desperately trying to get into the Medicaid waiver program to help cover all of the medical bills.
I know most people are not in favor of a tax hike- but imagine what it's like for a family not only coping with raising someone with a disability but also struggling with the costs that come with it. Think of the adults who do not have access to vital resources. I believe it is our duty to help those in need. After all you never know when your time of need will come. And, yes I DO believe it is our governments job to hep with these needs.
If you read all of this, THANK YOU! This means so much to us and the other families waiting to receive services.
