My husband was diagnosed with CML a year ago. He was let go from his job a year and a half before this. The outcome with PSI has been exceptional and with the medicine Gleevic to consider for his condition money was an issue. I work part-time so money is very tight and hard to come by. With Gods help the doctors office directed us to PSI. They have helped us so much and as soon as I can get extra money I plan on giving back all I can. I know that this is not expected but and this point in my life, if it was not for PSI and God we would not have come this far. Thank you PSI and Thank You God for sending us to them.

I was diagnosed at age 50 with Fabry disease after many years of unexplained symptoms and misdiagnoses. Several other family members have since been identified with this very rare and strange disease. I was forced to retire from my company after 34 years. My treatment is complicated, time consuming and sometimes overwhelming. Without the help and support of PSI I don't know how I would have managed. I am grateful for all the wonderful employees with this great organization and the compassionate services they provide to those of us who face challenging illnesses.

When I was diagnosed with CML three years ago, my life expectancy was 6 months unless I took the very expensive drug Gleevec, which we could not afford. We were referred to Patient Services, Inc., enrolled with them, went through their financial evaluation, and they have subsidized our copay. I will have to be on Gleevec the rest of my life. With Gleevec, my CML is controlled and I am able to help care for my family and even participate in volunteer activities for inner-city children. I am thankful to God for Patient Services, Inc.

I have CML a form of Leukemia, the treatment requires Gleevec an extremely expensive drug. Thanks to the extraordinary and wonderful help of PSI, I have been able to survive and cope with my Leukemia. Without them I wojld have fallen in plain desperation.
PSI and Dr. Khun its founder have helped thousands of needed people and he truly deserves my most intense gratitud.

PSI provides a kind, caring, and generous work environment which enables staff to provide for the thousands of chronically ill patients we financially assist. I consider the PSI staff as a second family and know each and every employee by name. In our twentieth year, we have over 70 exceptional individuals on staff (serving more than 6,500 patients)!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

In words and in deeds, from the patients we assist to the those we employ, people are what matter most at PSI. The patient testimonies we receive on a daily basis are touching and show the impact we have on lives nationwide!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

None

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

their sincere care for everyone they come in touch with!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

kind, caring, and dedicated to helping patients in their times of need!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

provide one more day of life and hope nationwide for Americans living with expensive chronic illnesses.

Ways to make it better...

PSI had more financial supporters. The support they receive now is wonderful but the need continues to increase everyday to due current economic conditions. I encourage all who can donate to do so.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

realted to continuing to gain financial support from the community during difficuly economic times.

One thing I'd also say is that...

PSI is an innovative not-for-profit organization that has been a pioneer leading the charge to find solutions to the challenges that face the chronically ill in the United States for 20 years!
