Age 18, Alabama

Meet Dallas. Dallas loves watching and listening to music videos, musicals, going to camp and baseball.

Dallas has Neurofibromatosis type 1, skeletal dysphasia and grade 3 stenosis. He uses a trach to breathe, a g-tube for nutrition, a communication device, and a wheelchair to get around. Medicaid is his secondary insurance and covers the nursing he needs so his mother, a single parent, can continue to work. 

Dallas' mom Sharon says: "Limiting the amount of funds a person receives will affect the care my son receives as well as his medical supplies. If my nursing support is cut, I will no longer be able to work. How will I care for my son and me? I understand changes need to be made to but please, not at the expense our children."
