CHAMPS is an absolute great service; I have no form of insurance, cannot afford it, so I take advantage of all free medical check-ups. I was somewhat disappointed on my last two (so far) visits. My complete results were unavailable when I went to check out, even after I waited around to see if they would show up. I am not expecting that to happen again! Sorry I am not able to make a financial donation.
