My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for HealthWell Foundation, Germantown, MD, USA
In November of 2016 I was diagnosed with multiple myeloma. My husband and I were left in a state of shock at even the sound of the word cancer. We had never even heard of that type of cancer. Soon after sorting out the details of what was being related to us, we were told that the disease would be treated with three drugs.
The first drug,revlimid, was so very far beyond our ability to pay to the co-pay. However, at the time that the doctor prescribed it, we did not realize the high cost. Behind the scenes, however,the financial aid department of the Levine Cancer Institute hurried to find a grant for me. The Healthwell Foundation stepped up to the plate. We are so thankful to have them grant much-needed funds to us which covers the cost of the co-pay.
My husband and I are on a fixed income because we are both retired. In no way could we ever afford the co- pay for the revlimid. This medication is needed in order for me to keep living. You see, there is no cure for multiple myeloma. However, with this drug and others I am able to keep living. My husband and I are so very grateful to the Healthwell Foundation for their generous donation to me.The kindness of this foundation can never be repaid, but we simply want you to know that those that donate to such a wonderful fund that you have really warmed our hearts. Today, my disease is stabilized, thanks to the Healthwell Foundation.
Sincerely, Courtney (Recipient of 3 Grants) Monroe, NC
