What I find most impressive about Divine Mercy is how strongly the underlying philosophy lives and breathes in the day-to-day work of the clinic. The emphasis - treating the patient as a whole person, and the care provided as an integrated part of the patient's whole well-being - seems like an easy platitude, until you spend a day in the clinic and experience the astonishing atmosphere of personal trust that permeates even the smallest interactions. Nothing could be further from the harried, impersonal and institutional attitudes that one unconsciously expects from so many medical care providers.

I support this group because it works from religious principles and gives great medical care to women who want to do the right thing. Tne staff really understands the patients' needs & does not over-medicate or over-treat the patients.

This is a charity that gives so much to it's recipients. This group of doctors and volunteers is truly woman centered and allows a woman to be fully a woman and a mother in situations when others would tell them to try to turn their backs on their child and just get rid of the "problem".

This is a charity which provides life-saving and eternal help for their clients. They help bring new life into the world and help others understand the miraculous beauty of life and our calling to be images of God. They do all this through so many hours of personal sacrifices and prayers.

My husband and I have seen how Divine Mercy Care/Tepeyac has helped so many women. Many of our friends go there and receive outstanding care. When we married back in 1999, we had 4 years of infertility. Dr. Bruchalski was amazing in helping us to pinpoint what was wrong and get us the treatment I needed. We have been blessed with 3 beautiful sons because of his wisdom and expertise! We are forever greatful for Dr. B. and his amazing staff for all they've done for us!

Dr. Marie Anderson lost a daughter in an auto accident on the July 4th weekend several years ago. Most mothers would have spent their time grieving, but not her. Dr. Anderson has continued to work at her honorable profession saving lives and making the world a better place.

I donate whenever I can to Divine Mercy Care. I have been a patient at Tepeyac Family Center for the last 14 years. Dr. John Bruchalski, Dr. Marie Anderson, and the rest of the staff of wonderful doctors, nurses, etc. have provided me with excellent high risk pregnancy care throughout my last 4 pregnancies. With my last pregnancy, I came very close to losing my life, due to the excellent care of the doctors from Tepeyac, my life was spared. At my request, Dr. John baptized my infant, John Randall, and also called a priest to bring me spiritual healing at the time my life was in danger. I am eternally grateful.

My daughter is a patient of Divine Mercy Care, and has received excellent gynocological and obstetrical care, with personal attention as well as technical competence. This is a unique group, which treats not only medical but also spiritual and emotional needs in a way very few others do. She drives over 60 miles each way rather than use other much nearer practices, excellent though they are in many respects, because of Divine Mercy Care's special gifts. They really do care more about the women they serve than their "bottom line", and I am very glad to be of financial help for this reason.
