Kayla’s concerns lead her to collect a box of necessities including to donate, but she says that a real solution is having more affordable medication options for everyone.

She writes:

Can you imagine not being able to afford your basic needs or medication if you were ill? How about your daily medication?

This isn’t just an issue in other countries. I witnessed first hand a mother’s inability to afford medications for her and her children right here in Wisconsin.

We have to do better.

Kayla goes on to say that Each soul, regardless of their story, deserves health, and not one that comes at such a high cost.

Have you been following my stories lately? (#ad) Thats a box of medicine we have collected for the homeless family I met in December. When Family Friendly Wisconsin asked if I wanted to share my experience I couldn't help but do so. In addition to the food, clothing and household items we have raised, medication has been one of the main necessities. Can you imagine not being able to afford your basic needs or medication if you were ill? How about your daily medication? This isn't just an issue in other countries. I witnessed first hand a mother's inability to afford medications for her and her children right here in Wisconsin. We have to do better. I sure wish I had the ability to raise money and gather boxes of medications for everyone that needs it, but in reality this is not possible on my own. I will however,do my part in spreading awareness that this is a real issue! We need more affordable medication options for everyone.
