Sixteen years ago I was diagnosed with HIV. Four years later. It was suggested that I get my affairs in order. My numbers were declining while my viral load was increasing. I thought I was going to die soon. Paying for my meds each month for four years was rapidly depleting any savings I had acquired,. My health was failing and my savings were almost gone . I called every government ageny, federal and state, asking where I might buy insurance to cover my medical bills and medications. I was not looking for a handout. I was on a wild goose chase. Every call I made asking to buy insurance was met with "I'm sorry". Then someone suggested I contact CareTeam. I had never heard of CareTeam and I was desperate. I made the call and spoke with a fine young lady who after hearing my story and asking me a few question suggested I come to thier office and speak with them about thier programs and what they were all about. I will say only this. "I walked into that office with a very dark cloud hanging over me, but walked out with the sun shining brightly all about me." I met the kindest most compassionate people who were not afraid to touch me or hug me. They told me to go home and stop worrying about my meds. Everything will be all right Careteam saw to all my medical needs with wonderful doctors, a staff that truly cared about my health and progress. To this day I thank the good Lord for allowing me to find this most wonderful and caring organization whose only goal is to help people in need. If I never believed in angels, I do now. Because of the care I recieved from CareTeam and it's staff I am healthy and continue to be virally undetectable. Thank you to a truly caring organization, CareTeam. Angels really do exist.
