In 2007 I was self employed and caring for my disabled husband. When health issues forced me to stop working, I had no insurance and no money for health care, but I knew I needed help. No one was available for my issues, until I stumbled on Catherines Health Center. At that time they were located in the basement of a church, and they were life savers. They found me help for my issues and even surgery when it was needed. Since then my life has really changed with a chronic illness, but they continue to provide support when ever I need it. They are awesome caring people dedicated to provide quality service.

I had let a lump in my breast go for several years because I had no insurance, when I finally confided in my sister she and her boyfriend called Catherines care for me to see if I could be seen there, they explained my situation to them and they got me in right away for only ten dollars. I had no job at the time so they worked and got me funded because it turned out I had stage 3b breast cancer. They were a God send and helped me so much. Without then I might not be here today. They set me up with Lack's Cancer Center and I am still here. In fact it was 5 years ago this month that I first went to Catherines care and was diagnosed by Lacks with the breast cancer. Thanks to my sister, her boyfriend ,Catherines and Lack's I am a 5 year survivor...God bless everyone and every agency that helped me.

Ever since 1995 I owned a small business and I had health insurance. In early 2008 work was getting scarce and I had to cancel the insurance because of the lack of work. Around the same time I needed health care so i somehow remembered that Catherine's was a walk in clinic so I made an appointment. Dr Walen listened to my symptoms at which time he took a simple blood test and he diagnosed diabetes. He gave me samples of the supplies I needed and provided followup care. Six months later I was very fatigued and I remembered Catherine's so I made an appointment. Karen listened to my symptoms and she took a blood test which showed a very low red blood cell count. She (and Dr Walen) told me to immediately go to the hospital for followup care. I went to Saint Mary's Hospital and a few days later I was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia with 95% of my blood cells were cancerous. I was admitted for 6 weeks of chemo at the Lacks Cancer Center which brought remission and a few months after that I was admitted for 3 months in Detroit for a Bone Marrow Transplant. Since my transplant I have been back to Catherine's only to tell them "Thank You"for saving my life. I was later told that if I had waited a few weeks more in going to the hospital for chemo I wouldn't have made it. This is why Catherine's holds a special place in my heart.
