FLINT, MI (WNEM) -

"Nobody is going to fix my daughter if there is something wrong. It's a long term thing that she is going to have to deal with the rest of her life," said Holly Versailles.

That's just the uncertain reality that Versailles faces. That’s why she joined other concerned parents at Freeman Elementary on Tuesday.

Molina Healthcare kicked off its first of 15 screenings for high blood lead levels.

"We want to meet the parents and kids where there at and help them get the information they need about lead alertness," said Heidi McGlinnen, Molina Healthcare. "We really want to encourage them to see their primary care doctor to get treatment. 

Although the attitude was festive, this was serious business for these parents.

"I am really concerned with all the Flint people because it's ridiculous that they been knowing about this situation and hasn't anything been resolved about it. It's hurting our generation," said Jaquana Frost.

That's why Charlene Mitchell had to take advantage of Tuesday's free testing for her children. She's been down this road before

"They were previously tested it was kind of high," Mitchell said. "So getting them retested of the current situation is a must."
