My name is Theresa Vogel and I am a single mother to three amazing children whose lives and health matters. My oldest daughter has struggled with depression for years and without healthcare coverage, cannot afford the medication she needs to help her. My younger daughter was born with a severe heart defect that caused a brain injury due to lack of oxygen. She will need lifelong services and support to help her succeed. My son was adopted from the foster care system. He was born with a very rare chromosomal defect that affects all aspects of his life and health. He also will need lifelong services and supports. Both of my younger children are attending a public school and are protected under the IDEA Act. They love school and are flourishing under the protections of this act and are loved and respected by their teachers and peers.
