Remembering Katie Beckett

Katie Beckett passed away suddenly on May 18th. The circumstances of this young woman’s life have left an important, indelible impact on the lives of people with disabilities and their families throughout the United States. Katie’s mother fought and changed how children with significant medical issues were served, forcing Medicaid to change how it funded services, allowing these children to be raised in their own homes, not hospitals or institutions.  http://nyti.ms/KOGOLE
