Lourdes’s daughter, Jannie, graduated from high school in 2009. Unlike some teenagers, she thinks her mom is the greatest. Ms. Luster came into Jannie’s life in 2006 when she married Jannie’s father. Ms. Luster quickly became an important part of Jannie’s world, making sure she got all the dental care and therapy that she needed. Lourdes took time off from work and made countless sacrifices to make sure Jannie got the health care she needed to thrive. “I know she is the answer to my prayers,” said Jannie.
