No one can tell the stories of children’s hospitals better than the patients and families that we serve. Every year, the Children’s Hospital Association hosts Family Advocacy Day in Washington, D.C.
This year, Claire Bevec, from Kenosha, Wis., is taking her story to Washington, D.C. She will join nearly 30 other child patients and their families from across the country to ask Congress to protect health care for children. National health care programs our kids rely on face cuts that would impact access to timely, quality pediatric health care.
Watch the following video to hear Claire tell her story in a letter to first lady Michelle Obama:
