Asher, 4

Asher is my happy, smart, funny, rambunctious four year old. He loves to play with tractors, his sister, swim, and eat! He loves fruits and veggies but relies on medical nutrition to provide him filling, rounded meals and snacks. It can be difficult to provide for him as he goes through growth spurts and continues to grow. The medical foods are very expensive and I worry for the future. My son’s health will always be a first priority for our family, but I worry about what we will have to sacrifice to continue to provide for him as he grows. Coverage for medical nutrition would be a game changer for my anxiety and budget. It would allow us to provide everything my son needs to continue to grow and be amazing!
