Review for Rescu Foundation Inc, Wheaton, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

Role:  Client Served & RESCU has a very active fundraising life, and there almost always a function of some kind at every fair. We always attend, and donate, and I have given my time to help implement auctions, games and performances.
