At first my dad’s Connecticut Carpenters insurance refused to cover my condition so he took a job with the Milford Board of Education and I have had excellent coverage ever since.

I have enjoyed a pretty normal life and have influenced a number of my friends to become vegetarians or vegans along the way.
