Team Instructions for Hunt for a Cure
It seems surreal that we are in the last month of 2019. This past year has seen unprecedented growth within Patient Assist VI. We are servicing more patients than ever before and continue to receive referrals for new patients each week. Because of our amazing and generous donors, we have been able to add an additional 75 patients this year alone! These new patients are from across the territory: St. Thomas, St. John, and St. Croix. Being able to expand throughout the territory has been a goal and a need since the program began.
Many of our patients continue to wait for the hotels to reopen so that they can go back to work. One of the major hotels in St. Thomas is slated to reopen in October 2020 - more than 3 years after the devastation caused by Hurricanes Maria and Irma.
Mid October we partnered with Cancer Support Virgin Islands (CSVI) for the 1st Annual Hunt for a Cure, sponsored by The Tropical Treasure Hunt Company. The event was a great success and not only raised funds for both organizations but also allowed the community to learn more about Patient Assist VI. (see pictures from the event!)
If you're looking to make any end of year donations, please consider Patient Assist VI in your giving. We, and our patients, appreciate your support.
So, as the year runs out and we prep for continued growth in 2020, we want to say THANK YOU to all who have donated and supported our organization and mission. Knowing that our patients are not saddled with the financial burden of affording their medication creates a feeling of satisfaction and the knowledge that Patient Assist VI truly does make a difference in the community.
Fantastic MDs at STEEMC!
