Imagine a young man named Toni in his twenties (True Case). He was extremely tired all the time, constantly going to the bathroom and overall felt physically bad. He could hardly stand due to his legs being so swollen and painful. Toni went to see his doctor at his local clinic and was told by the office staff that he couldn’t be seen because he had no insurance and couldn’t afford to pay. Who was going to help him? Who was going to help him? He couldn’t afford the Accountable Care Act insurance due to the high deductibles he couldn’t pay. He couldn’t go to the Emergency Room and get a bill that he couldn’t pay. Toni was dying but did not know it yet.
Toni came to the Sheep Health Care Center where we provided free care and direction to diagnose his uncontrolled diabetes, kidney failure and eventually life saving Kidney Transplant. The story ends well for Toni! This is but one of many compassionate care stories to be told but we can’t do it alone. For every $1 dollar you donate; the clinic gives $8 to $10 dollars back in free care due to our awesome volunteers donating free time and expertise at what they do so well, loving people.
Sheep Health Care Center opened our doors in November of 2010 with just a handful of volunteers willing to freely serve those with no health insurance and in need of medical care. Our volunteer staff has grown to over 80 people including Physicians, Nurse Practitioners, Physician Assistants, Registered Nurses, Pharmacists, Chaplains and Non medical personnel that give above-and-beyond their capabilities because they are dedicated to helping those in need.
The number of patients we see weekly is growing so the amount of medication, lab work, and other testing we do for free is costing more each year. Won’t you please consider giving a monetary donation to help Sheep Inc. Health Care Center provide free medical care to those who can’t afford it?
We would appreciate anything you can give. Your donation is Tax deductible.
