    In March 2007, CDF joined 18 of the nation's leading religious leaders, representing tens of millions, and 10 families from across the country who struggle every day to meet their children's health needs, many with life-threatening illnesses, to urge Congress to enact the All Healthy Children Act and ensure health coverage for all children. The families from Houston, Austin, New York, Jackson, Miss., and Columbus, Ohio met with some of our country's most prominent faith leaders at a "Children’s Witness" at Shiloh Baptist Church in Washington, DC to discuss their daily struggles. Two of the families have lost a child in the last few weeks because they could not find a doctor to provide the services they desperately needed or were wrongfully denied health coverage.
