The Crawford Family for the Wall Street Journal

[Wayne and Judy Crawford are photographed at their home in Cumberland, MD. They lost their son, Scott Crawford, after a lengthy and costly hospital stay which was covered by Medicare.  Scott Crawford represented a small percentage of high-cost patients which account for a significant amount of the Medicare budget.]

The Crawfords were very gracious in allowing the WSJ to tell their story.  It is not a happy one, and it affects us all.  I suggest you read more about it.

They let me take their portraits at their home and at the campsite where their son used to go to unwind and get away from his troubles.
