This is Eli

A blog about Eli. A blog about survival – and by that, I mean life!

Hello. This giving Tuesday, I am asking for your help on one thing on behalf of my son Eli, who has a fatal disease called cystic fibrosis. It’s not cash. It’s time for a pair of phone calls.

For giving Tuesday, please make a phone call to your senators on behalf of medically complex kids like Eli.

Call your senators TODAY 202-224-3121 and tell them GOP tax and budget bills will hurt children with complex medical needs like my son Eli in the following ways:

1. 13 million people will lose insurance coverage.

2. For millions with insurance, premiums will go up 10 percent a year.

3. It ends a deduction for high medical expenses.

4. Billions less in Medicaid spending with more than $1 trillion in cuts forecasted in the GOP budget. NOTE: Half of children with cystic fibrosis are on Medicaid.

There is no time to waste. The GOP is ramming its bills through and wants the Senate to vote this week.

Your calls are especially important in the following states, where GOP senators rightly have their doubts about the harfmul plans moving forward.

OKLAHOMA: (!!!! Eli’s home state!!!): James Lankford

TENNESSEE: Bob Corker

WISCONSIN: Ron Johnson and Steve Daines

MAINE: Susan Collins

ARIZONA:John McCain AND Jeff Flake

KANSAS: Jerry Moran

Have a heart for medically vulnerable children and make these calls.

Our son has a terminal illness and life is tough enough.

My family thanks you from the bottom of our hearts.

 

CALL NOW: 202-224-3121
