Being an advocate can be tough.  Barriers and red tape can test one’s patience.  James Holt and his wife Nicole Smith-Holt lost their son Alec after he rationed his insulin due to rising costs.  The two set out on a quest to make sure that no other family has to go through what they endured.  Check out this story on KARE11.
