The dream

 

Twenty years ago...

...our founder's mom was a young attorney with three kids, and her middle child, Paul, was sick. After months of attempting to juggle a fledgling law career, medical specialists across three states, and a very sick two-year-old, she ultimately left her firm to become her son's nurse, medical claims consultant, patient advocate, and all-around superhero caregiver. Paul's diagnosis changed by the week, and the amount of information that she had to learn and understand to take good care of him was staggering - not to mention the hours spent on hold with insurance, waiting to hear about approvals and co-pays. She stitched together opinions and records from many doctors, and then added her own painstaking notes about Paul's progress and setbacks, to make sure everyone had the full story before treating her son. The process was manual and time-consuming, and required our founder's mom to become an expert in her son's condition, taking away time from everything else in her life. 

That was 1996. Today, the healthcare system is even more complex, and life for the parents of kids with chronic disease is hardly easier than it was back then. We're here to change that.

Imagine a world in which every parent can be a superhero caregiver - without giving up everything else.
