Imagine having to leave a good job to take care of a dearly loved family member who was dying of cancer. In the process, you give up your health insurance and most of your family's income, making it impossible to afford the asthma inhaler that helps you breathe.
This was the situation Denise, a 36-year old mother of three, found herself in at the start of the pandemic. Fortunately, the Volunteer Healthcare Clinic (VHC) was here. I am asking you to make a financial gift today to ensure Denise - and everyone in the community - can breathe easier knowing that AVHC will continue to be here to help.
She credits VHC with keeping diabetes at bay and helping her manage her asthma.
"When you are uninsured and have a chronic disease like asthma, it can be really difficult. VHC has been amazing...everyone is so helpful and informative. The doctors take time to explain and pay attention to every detail. Access to care is essential and the Volunteer Healthcare Clinic is a wonderful resource for the entire community."
