A Sudbury family with a seriously sick child is speaking out about what they say is a failure of the for-profit health-care system that leaves them and other families unable to get the level of care they need. 

Tina Senior and her husband Daniel Brousseau have decided to go public with the frustrations of trying to get suitable care for their six-year-old son, Alex. 

The Val Caron family met with news reporters and Nickel Belt MPP France Gélinas on March 8 to outline how difficult it has become to look after the youngster even though they qualify for various health care services.

Speaking for nearly an hour, Senior said her family say they have faced difficulties and disappointments in the level of care provided to her son who has a disease known as Agenesis of the Corpus Callosum, a condition where the two sides of his brain are not adequately connected.
