Tell Congress health services are vital to people with disabilities and their families

Ryan and Justin Forthofer

Health services for people with disabilities are now in serious jeopardy with Congress taking its first steps to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and restructure Medicaid.

Sign our petition to let Congress know how vital health services are to people with disabilities and their families.

We see first-hand – in the work we do each and every day – how access to care can transform a family. Six years ago, the Forthofer family was in crisis. Their sons, Justin and Ryan, both have Myotonic Muscular Dystrophy and Autism, and the boys’ behavioral outbursts made them a danger to themselves, each other, and their sister.

Today, the Forthofer's face a brighter future. With the help of Easterseals and Medicaid home-based services, both boys are making excellent progress, and are successfully living at home.

Sign now and join us in making sure people with disabilities continue to have access to the services they need.
