This Family Found an Ally in Their Fight to Heal Their Daughter

What happened to April Jim and Aaron Tilden’s infant daughter, Shineeha, is every parent’s worst nightmare. Soon after she was born, Shineeha began having frightening, frequent seizures and required round-the-clock care at Phoenix Children’s Hospital. As any parents would, Jim and Tilden wanted to be by their daughter’s side at every moment during her treatment. But since they lived six hours away in Navajo Nation, located in the northeastern part of the state, caring for their daughter became an exhausting hardship. Find out how UnitedHealthcare helped to keep this family together with a home of their own while their daughter battled a rare disorder.
