Rylin and David Rodgers were shocked at how quickly medical debt changed their lives.

Many families of children who are deaf or hard of hearing face financial challenges in getting medical and intervention needs met. It is important that policy makers hear these stories to help them understand the need for adequate insurance coverage and other financing supports so our children can grow up to reach their potential. It’s important that other families hear these stories so they know they are not alone.
