Many depend on children’s healthcare

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion I have written to Sens. Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand, as well as my Rep. John Faso, regarding the lack of renewed funding for children’s healthcare. Millions of children depend on this funding to get critical care to help them to survive. Many would be in real danger of dying without this very costly medical care. We can’t turn our backs on our youngest and most vulnerable population. Chemotherapeutic drugs are way too expensive for these families to afford on their own.Our New York representatives need to get other members of Congress to renew the funding that is crucial for these children. I work in healthcare, so I see firsthand how expensive these treatments can be. Look in your heart and search your soul so you see that helping our children is the right thing to do. Please don’t let them down. Our children are our future.Amy ScorcaRhinebeckMore from The Daily Gazette:Gov.
