Shawn Caster

“Every Mother’s Day is a gift. Julian wasn’t supposed to see the first one. Yet, this marks our sixth one together. For Julian, and thousands of other Tennessee children, TJC has literally been a lifesaver.”

Julian was born with serious heart and lung defects, and soon after birth suffered a stroke. But, his mother, Shawn, never gave up.

Nor has the Tennessee Justice Center. When the TennCare HMO unilaterally decided to cut off all his health benefits, Shawn and TJC joined forces. Julian became a lead plaintiff in a landmark case to protect patient rights.

The result? First, an assurance of healthcare benefits for Julian and 637,000 other vulnerable Tennessee children. And second, a landmark decision that every child and family receiving TennCare is entitled to appeal arbitrary denial of care.
