Laura’s Story: Medicaid Saves Caregivers

IMG_9901These two are my adult daughter and granddaughter. My daughter has developmental delays and multiple types of mental illness. My granddaughter has Down syndrome, Dyspraxia, and ADHD. Without Medicaid they will not have the therapies, medications, and medical care they need to live productive lives.

We are grandparents raising this little girl, and we are guardians to my daughter. We can’t make enough money to pay for private insurance for them or to pay out of pocket for these much needed services, therapies and medications. I fight Fibromyalgia, Lupus, and cancer. I don’t receive Medicaid. The stress of worrying if these 2 young ladies will still have medical care makes my health suffer greatly. I ask that Medicaid not be cut, that services are not capped so that all of those like my daughter and granddaughter can continue to get the treatments, therapies and medications they so desperately need.
