Feeling Good – Patient Success Story “James”

The MERCI Clinic patients want to tell their story– stories of how the clinic helps them get through the day. Without care from the clinic, they would be without much needed medical and dental care– and life-saving medicine. With no other options, they would be forced to seek care in the emergency room or– just go without. Many can only afford to buy either food for their family or insulin for their diabetes.

James has been a patient for three years. Also 62 years old, James has been diagnosed with diabetes and heart disease. He used to own his own business and at one point, was making financial donations to the clinic, but now works part time. He has no health insurance and does not qualify for Medicaid. James is seen in the clinic every ninety days; he receives multiple medications each month; medications without which he cannot live!

Your donations make BIG differences in the lives of so many! No matter how big or small, we make sure to maximize every dollar. In fact, for every dollar donated, we provide $8.25 worth of quality health care for those in need. Please consider making a donation today; it could help save a life!
