Review from Guidestar
February 1, 2011

In the summer of '09 my husband and I were performing in Wisconsin, hundreds of miles from home, when Gregg doubled over with unbearable pains in his abdomen. We were both very healthy, so this was a real scare. We held off as long as we could, but finally, on our doctor's advice, went to the emergency room.

It turned out to be a kidney stone. I stayed engaged and informed with the hospital about what was being done, but even with refusal of redundant tests and treatments, and no follow-up visits, the hospital bill was over five thousand dollars: enough to dissolve our business and take us off the road, if RESCU had not been around. Between negotiation and financial support we were able to continue our performances without missing a single date. We put out our best album that year, and we're still performing today.

The Great!

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

I first heard of RESCU in 06, when a 17 year old acrobat who performed with his delightful family discovered a congenital back defect, through a fall that would have left his leg useless. RESCU paid for the therapy that put him back on the stage with his siblings. Every RenFair worker know someone whose life and living have been preserved by this charity. It has more than enthusiastic support among the people it benefits. Managed by a dedicated handful, it benefits a highly interdependent community.

Ways to make it better...

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

I have heard that RESCU may eventually be able to offer a cooperative group insurance plan to RenFair workers and performers. I hope eventually this can happen.

I have been a volunteer with RESCU almost since its inception. We have held many fund-raising events, including some quite imaginative ones, and one thing that shines through all the events is the community spirit and desire to help.
The community it serves is one that will always find it hard
to get insurance, even if many could afford it. The many educational and preventative medicine programs have had a positive effect, and any assistance provided through programs such as this are necessary and very much appreciated.
