This person has left the following thank you note:

After undergoing a painful period spent in the hospital, I finally came home and was met with more bills than I could bare or handle. Trying to deal with this whole process caused so much stress I felt paralyzed. I didn't know where to turn or where to start to try and find the money to pay for everything required of me. I felt lost, confused and scared. I spent hours on the phone with agencies, foundations and doctors offices trying to find a way to get some help. Fortunately, a bookkeeper mentioned your organization and said that I should try and contact you. Not knowing what you were about, I went ahead anyway and filled out the application with a friends help. At one point we got confused while filling out the application form and had to call for help and everyone we spoke with was so kind, patient and helpful guiding us through the application process. I have to say that I've been a little shook-up lately so I get confused a lot and it's so nice to have someone on the other end be patient and understanding. While waiting to see if I would even be considered by Modest Needs Organization for funding, I said many prayers and waited. Even then I didn't know too much about your operation and how it works or the people who donate. Once the notice of approval came through it was like a gift from above. I truly feel blessed for I've come to realize that you donors are a special group of people who give from your hearts with generosity and kindness. I can't thank you enough for considering my request and donating to it so selflessly for it will ease some of my burden. Please know that the gift you've given me today has affected me profoundly and I am so grateful to each and everyone of you! This experience has really opened my eyes to the fact that there are wonderful people out there who have it in their hearts to just help! It appear that helping others, even though they may not have an abundance themselves, is not even a question. It's showed me that a little bit of love and caring can go a long way and should be spread by us all. My goal is that I will some day soon be able to help someone in a similar situation. Again, I want to thank all of the donors, who ever you are, for your generosity, giving nature and support you've shown for my cause. I am so ever grateful and will never forget your help. Sincerely, Sylvia

Rheumatoid Arthritis Infusion

My Story:

I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and my insurance has stopped covering my every 7 week infusion costs. I am a retired elderly woman who is on a fixed income and can't afford the cost of this needed infusion.

As someone with RA, the pain and discomfort I experience without these infusions is extremely painful and taxing. It would be so kind to have some assistance so I can get relief from this disease and be somewhat pain free. Thank you for your help!
