Within two weeks of submitting the application, Vera received health insurance for her son and was placed on waiting lists for services through the Department of Disabilities and Special Needs. Vera came in to see Yvonne on the verge of tears because she was unable to believe that both of them had healthcare and that he would be getting access to the services he needed. She kept waving the letter and asking, “Is this True?”. What an amazing moment to read the letter and let her know that she could take Dmitriy to the doctor and get the medicine, that he so desperately needed, refilled. She is overwhelmed with the progress that has been made so far, but there is still more work to be done.
