“In early 2022 our daughter was diagnosed with a rare autoimmune disorder called juvenile dermatomyositis (JDM). It took about three months and many different visits to urgent care, the ER, and different specialists in order for her to finally be diagnosed." - Tiffany, SEBB employee

"Without our health care benefits, we would not have been able to afford all of her necessary medications or doctor’s visits. She is still on medication, going to physical therapy every other week, and seeing three different specialists. This is an incurable disease. She will need a dedicated health care team well into her childhood and adult life. Without medical benefits, our daughter would suffer greatly.”
