“Words cannot describe how grateful we are to have found the clinic when my mother became ill.” Jimena D
Dear Friend of the Clinic,
Please meet two of our patients: husband and wife, Eva and Jorge, and their daughter Jimena. Eva came to Will-Grundy Medical Clinic in 2008 after being referred to us through one of our partner hospitals. She had been evaluated and tested at the hospital and was diagnosed with breast cancer. With no insurance and limited resources, she became one of our patients. Her treatment plan was a lumpectomy, chemotherapy and radiation, which resulted in remission for several years. However, the cancer later returned and a mastectomy was necessary. Currently, Eva is doing well as she continues with her follow-up visits at the clinic with specialists. “I cannot express my gratitude to everyone at the clinic. The care I have received means so much to me and my family”, said Eva. This experience has had a profound effect on the whole family. “We are truly blessed to have our mother here today”, said Jimena.
Jorge is also a patient here at Will-Grundy Medical Clinic. He sought care at the clinic in 2016 for a routine physical exam. His wellness check addressed his inability to eat and digest certain foods. Our volunteer provider diagnosed Jorge with a reflux disease, which he now keeps under control through medication.
“Both of my parents have received such good care from the clinic. It has truly been a blessing for our whole family”, explained their daughter, Jimena.
Donations made to Will-Grundy Medical Clinic impact so many lives. Our care touches not only our patients, but profoundly impacts their families as well. By maintaining healthy residents, together we can ensure a strong and vibrant community. Illness does not know color, gender, creed or social status. It affects us all in some way. Can you help keep our families strong and healthy? Please consider making a donation to the clinic so we can continue to care for patients like Eva and Jorge. Their daughter and grandchildren are beyond grateful for every moment they share as a family.
For 30 years, Will-Grundy Medical Clinic has helped people like Eva and Jorge. Similar to 75% of our patients, Eva and Jorge work full-time, but don’t have health insurance and struggle financially. Our patients’ average annual household income is just above $20,000. However, our patients are 90% medically compliant because they value the quality of care our clinic provides and the volunteer providers who help them. Moreover, 80% of Will-Grundy Medical Clinic patients experience improved health outcomes as a result.
