Mississippi Participant Testimonial 2017

“As a mother of a terminally ill child, the WIC program has tremendously helped my husband and I. We are so fortunate to have this extra help. I was a hard working mother that had to quit work due to my son’s disease progression. Without the help of the WIC, we would see many more struggles. We are so thankful to have a program that helps families in need. Not only has it helped us save money for his hospital bills, it has been so nice to go pick up the milk for a month, since our child is homebound. I am so thankful that the Congress has funded the WIC program for not only myself but other families in need. The children deserve the best. This program helps allow each child the opportunity to receive the best whether their parents can provide it or not.” — WIC Participant, Mississippi
