    My name is Tammy Stegeman. I'd like to tell you my story.
    For the past 12 years, I've been very sick with various illnesses. My bones are deteriorating, which has caused me to need home health care and an electric wheelchair.
    I've been trying to be very independent on my own. But my husband and I split up 12 years ago, and it has made it harder to survive on my own.
    And now, it has come to the point that I'm needing in-home care and an electric wheelchair. So I went to the Independent Center, and I learned from them that the program was frozen since 2008 — the in-home health care service PD waiver. They said they were unable to help with services.
