My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for HealthWell Foundation, Germantown, MD, USA
In May of 2017, my wife started having back and hip pain that we thought was the result of lifting and moving furniture after my mother passed away. Her pain continued to get worse and within one month we started to see her doctor and a chiropractor. No relief. we were sent to see a pain specialist and then to an endocrinologist where we began a bone building medication protocol. it was then determined that my wife needed a hip replaced, but the pain continued. we went to the hospital ER on November 1, 2017 where, after further testing, it was determined that she had multiple myeloma, a cancer of the blood. Within four days, she began chemo therapy. Her oncologists, when discussing her treatment plan, stated that the chemo was very expensive but there was financial help out there. The oncologist recommended the Health Well Foundation and some other areas to get assistance. We called Health Well and explained our situation. They were courteous, professional and most of all, kind. They asked some questions about our situation and then told us right away that our request for a grant was approved! A huge weight was lifted from our shoulders. We were able to concentrate on getting better and not have to worry about paying for the chemo drug. This allows us to look to the future and better days ahead. Health Well Foundation is wonderful and a true blessing on our journey. We would like to say thank you to them for this grant and all of their help. And we are moving forward.
Most Thankful and Sincere,
Jan and John Cleaver
