How Two Moms Became Greater Together

Finding appropriate treatment and support for a child with a rare disease is difficult in any circumstances, but it can be extremely challenging in rural Alaska. Specialists are few and far between and travel often involves hundreds of miles and long plane rides. Greta and Mary Middleton first crossed paths as they attempted to find good care for their children with special needs. They now work together to empower other families, locate and access good care and implement policies that address the complex problems they face.
