We have a patient who has basically been in and out of the hospital most weeks this year since April. Although the mother was the single working parent for the first 4 years of his life, she finally had to quit her minimum wage job to care for him. Her husband has a permanent disability. Monies
from HFHF went to help the family with back rent and 2 pieces of medical equipment that insurance doesn’t cover. The equipment prevents the patient from pulling out tubes and will hopefully prevent future re-hospitalizations.
In speaking with the mother on Monday, she said HFHF was “God sent” and made her family’s life a lot easier. Her son is doing remarkably better and was preparing for a blood transfusion on Tuesday.
