"They found there was over 11 mistakes made throughout the whole first 19 days of Nathanial's life, and so they went after it… They always kept in touch. They always called. They always made sure that we knew what was going on."


"By having the settlement, it's helped a lot with Tiara's surgeries, her doctor visits, all the special equipment that she needs… Because of the lawsuit, the community hospital did make changes, and that’s the whole thing, it, you know it, because of things happen to Tiara, you know, other children don't have to go through what she went through."
