Was working out with a group of other moms and at the end of the workout the mother's started talking and complaining how they wished their children would eat healthier. I got in my car and started crying, because I just want my CHILD to eat. This is a struggle parents of PFD go through on a daily basis.
Just wanted to share this experience as other PFD families go through this on a regular basis.
What having coverage could mean
If having better medical coverage it would make a difference.
