My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for PAN Foundation, Washington, DC, USA
I wasn’t sure what I was going to do when I was diagnosed with MS and discovered that medication to slow the progression of this disease was close to $90,000 a year. That doesn’t count the other meds I take to address the symptoms. Just battling the disease was stressful enough, the cost of treatment was overwhelming. Being on Medicare disqualifies you for drug company assistance programs. Medicare only partially pays for medications, so even the copays were out of reach. Thankfully I heard about PAN. The day I called I was treated with respect and dignity. When I learned I had received a grant to assist with the copays, I literally sat and cried tears of disbelief and joy for 15 minutes! The help I receive from PAN makes treatment possible. Without them, my physical abilities and quality of life would be very different then what they are today.
