Information gleaned

e.g., Riley’s is quite a drive for us to get our daughter there for her regular clinic visits, one of us has to take off work.

No matter what treatment we have tried, our daughter continues to have flare ups of her asthma.

The medications and equipment to do the breathing treatments is out of our price range and we lost our family’s health insurance 18 months ago.
