BROWNSVILLE – A Rio Grande Valley father of three is fighting for both his health and his job.

Jack Jew, who is battling bipolar disorder, says his doctor’s appointments are beginning to interfere with work.

His appointments at Tropical Texas Behavioral Health are being scheduled during his work hours.

"I feel like I need to be involved with the program I need their help I need their services but I also need to make a living," explains Jew.
