Local healthcare providers make such a difference!
Our campaign continues to raise funds to assist Virgin Islanders in attaining medication that would otherwise be cost prohibitive. The last few months have seen unprecented growth! Our mission is to ease the financial burden patients face when contemplating having to choose between their basic living expenses and the medications to keep them healthy. Did you know that a $100 donation can provide insulin for a year to a patient in need? Out of pocket that same insulin would cost the patient on average over $5,000!
Patient Spotlight for this quarter: A patient's wife recently stated "I don't know what we would do without your help! We never could have afforded this medication." This patient is hard-working and a great provider for his family. Unfortunately, a medical emergency followed by a DVT in his leg took him out of the workforce. With no insurance and no means to buy his $600 a month life-saving medication, they turned to Patient Assist, VI. We were successful in applying for and receiving his medication at NO COST to the patient! He is now able focus on getting healthy and returning to work.
Without our generous and supportive donors, we would not be able to assist these patients. Thank you for continuing to support Patient Assist VI. Your donations truly make a difference in so many lives!
