Quinten Woods died of pneumonia about a year ago in Oklahoma City.
He was 15-years-old.
Quinten's sister, Valerie Wood-Harber, says she called the Oklahoma Department of Human Services every day for three weeks before his death and no one ever showed up at the home.
On her blog, Wood-Harber says, “Quinten was born with a very rare chromosomal abnormality (Ring 9 Chromosome) that rendered him unable to walk, talk, or care for himself.”
She says she tried to visit Quinten and Cameron, the other brother, from her home in Arkansas as often as possible.
Valerie says, “The boys kept on getting sick - colds that never went away, but our father never took them to the doctor. “
Wood-Harber didn’t know the brothers even existed until several years ago.
“Nine years ago, I met my biological father, and I found out that I had little brothers.”
Three days later, Valerie says her father asked if the boys could live with her in Arkansas while he went to work overseas. She was nineteen-years-old.
She says, “After almost four years of caring for them, I reached a point where I could no longer, emotionally or financially do it anymore.”
It wasn’t long before she noticed Quinten’s weight loss and pale skin.
Tuesday Valerie delivered a petition with 460,000 signatures to Governor Mary Fallin's office.
She says she’s not suing the department, but is calling for an investigation.
DHS has had many problems over the last few years.
A class-action lawsuit was filed after the death of several children under the state's watch.
After that, DHS a $153 million plan to overhaul the system.
