Our Strength is Needed
Very early this morning the following email hit my inbox. Our help is urgently needed to protect this family from what I perceive as unfair and uncaring behavior. This will only take a couple minutes of your time, but will have profound impact. Please, I beg you, take the time.
From: Jane Martellino (of Yes! GraceRocks)
Another one of the patients that Yes! Grace supports in a non-financial way (they asked only for prayer and to join forces with them on helmet safety which we are currently designing a t-shirt). If they ever need a grant, they know they can apply. But they do need our help with getting this word out (see email below):

We desperately need your help! United Healthcare is denying further coverage for Joseph at TIRR. On Monday they make the final decision to not only cut off coverage, but put us in a position of owing back medical bills. The worst part is that Joseph meets all the requirements for coverage and UHC is STILL denying coverage. If we all can band together over the weekend and make A LOT of “noise”, we believe we can get UHC to change their minds and do the right thing for Joseph and continue his care that he needs and is positively responding to at TIRR. If you can do 1 or ALL of the following and ask all your friends and family to do the same, then we have a great chance!
This web “bombing” is not unnoticed by United Healthcare, so please please, please help us help Joseph!!
