“If we did not have Medicaid, my son would be dead.  That sounds a bit dramatic, but it is the case.”

I have 2 sons, one of which is on a Medicaid Waiver. My son has Cystic Fibrosis (CF) and Cerebral Palsy(CP).  Having both has been a challenge, the CP makes it so he is unable to do enough exercise to help with the CF.   If we did not have Medicaid, my son would be dead.  That sounds a bit dramatic, but it is the case.  His formula alone is $4500 a month.  His medications are an extremely substantial amount.  Even when having private insurance, the deductible is more than my family can afford.  Even with my husband and I both working.  Please make choices that will keep my son alive and healthy.
