From the moment we first become parents, we take on that role of protector for our children. There’s nothing like being a Mom and wanting to just keep your baby safe and healthy forever. Sometime things are out of our control and our loved ones have health issues. It can be scary and terrifying. Especially if you don’t have the funds you might need to pay for special health care services your loved one might require.
Did you know that the UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation makes huge efforts to help children and families in need??? I think this is AMAZING and it’s something lots of people might not even be aware is available. Basically, they have a grant program that people can apply towards. UHCCF aims to award 20,000 grants by the year 2020. They have already awarded over 13,000 grants!!!! 88.9% of qualified, completed medical grant applications are approved too. INCREDIBLE!
The UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation grants are mainly funded by donations from the public and other organizations, so considering donating today to make help give back and make a difference.
My daughter Kenzie was born 4 weeks early and I can remember worrying so much about her in those early days! It never stops! Luckily, she’s grown to be healthy and strong! However, she’s often the “sickest” healthy person I know as she does get sick a LOT due to having bad asthma and an immune disorder that makes her prone to infections like pneumonia.
Luckily we’re able to manage her health care expenses, since this is small stuff in the grand scheme of health problems a child might have, but I can’t imagine how challenging it would be if she had a more severe disease and we were challenged to pay for her medical care. I’m so thankful to hear about this program from the UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation.
