Feeling Good – Patient Success Story “Danielle”

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.

Danielle needs medications to control her blood pressure and diabetes. A few years ago, Danielle was laid off from her job when the company downsized. Danielle was forced to go on COBRA, but eventually had to withdraw due to the high cost. With no insurance, she was faced with paying a lot of money for her medications- or going without- so she went without. Obviously, her health declined rapidly until she was referred by a friend to the MERCI Clinic, where her high blood pressure and diabetes issues are being addressed.
