Jessica has two young sons with autism. Without health insurance, she has not been able to afford surgery that she needs. As a single mom, she sometimes struggles to provide her sons with the care that they need, because of pain from her untreated condition.

“We parents need to be well, to be with them, to support them to keep making progress. Because no one is going to fight for a child like their parents do. No one is going to sacrifice everything for their child like their parents do.”
