The Balancing Act: Elena Hung and Little Lobbyists

Who Lives Like This?! show

Summary: Our guest today is Elena Hung. She is the President and Co-Founder of Little Lobbyists, a parent-led organization that advocates for children with complex medical needs. Her daughter Xiomara (whose name means "ready for battle") was born with a number of medical issues. Elena, Xiomara, and families like them have been visiting Capitol Hill and speaking with lawmakers and their staffers, talking about what is possible with access to quality, affordable health care, and what is at stake without it. Elena: "We are story tellers. We are truth tellers. We are sharing the humanity of children with complex medical needs."
