Lindsay Nannett McMillan was born on February 25, 1984. She was a beautiful, happy child. It soon became apparent that Lindsay was not going to lead a healthy life. Numerous hospitalizations, doctors, specialists and therapy became part of "normal" life for Lindsay and her family. What also became part of normal life was the constant battles to gain the necessities of her life. Expensive formulas, therapies, medical equipment, non-covered medical procedures, and later nursing care, led to fights with insurance companies and bureaucracies. On March 3, 1999, Lindsay lost her fight for life. She touched so many people in her life that The Lindsay Foundation was formed in her memory. We have the hope that no other family will have to fight so hard to receive the assistance that is needed in order to provide for the children that they love. It is a parent's worst nightmare to realize that their child has needs that cannot be met. I know first-hand. I am Lindsay's mom and the founder of The Lindsay Foundation. I loved my little girl more than life itself. That she had medical problems was not a burden. Not being able to provide all that she needed was. No parent should have to fight the way we did. No child should have to do without because, financially, the parent can't provide. This is our goal and my dream.
