(OPEN):
PROPOSALS TO TRANSFORM MEDICAID--INCLUDING LIMITING FEDERAL-SUPPORT TO STATES--ARE THREATENING CHILDREN'S HEALTHCARE.  MEDICAID IS THE SINGLE-LARGEST CHILDREN'S-HEALTH-INSURANCE PROGRAM--INSURING ONE IN THREE CHILDREN, AND COVERING HALF OF ALL CHILDREN WHO RECEIVE CARE IN A CHILDREN'S-HOSPITAL--MAKING IT A CRUCIAL COMPONENT FOR THE WELL-BEING OF CHILDREN--CHILDREN LIKE EIGHT-YEAR-OLD BRANDON WOODS.  HIS MOM, LASHAWNDA CROCKETT...

(CROCKETT):
"
WHEN BRANDON'S MEDICATION WAS NO LONGER ABLE TO HELP HIM MANAGE HIS HEART-PROBLEM, THE DOCTORS AT 'NATIONWIDE CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL' WERE ABLE TO PERFORM A HEART-TRANSPLANT; THEY GAVE HIM THE GIFT OF LIFE.  NOW, HE'S ABLE TO KEEP UP WITH HIS FRIENDS AND ENJOY SWIMMING."

(CLOSE):
CROCKETT AND OTHER FAMILIES, FROM ACROSS THE NATION, ARE MEETING WITH MEMBERS OF CONGRESS, IN WASHINGTON, TO SPEAK ABOUT THE HEALTHCARE THEY RELY ON--AND THE IMPORTANCE OF CHILDREN'S-HOSPITALS--DURING "FAMILY ADVOCACY DAY".  FOR MORE INFORMATION ON "FAMILY ADVOCACY DAY", VISIT "CHILDRENS-HOSPITALS"-DOT-NET.
