A Story of Resilience and Hope

One beneficiary of MCH’s Community Benefit Program is Francis Savoie, a single father and former oil truck driver. Francis was diagnosed with severe rheumatoid arthritis and degenerative disc disease at the age of 42, which threatened his ability to work and provide for his family. However, regular infusion treatments at MCH’s Oncology and Infusion Center brought relief.

“The infusion treatments really helped,” says Francis, “but I had trouble affording my co-pays. MCH helped me through their Financial Assistance Program.”

The compassionate staff at MCH fought for Francis, providing him with the financial support he needed to continue his treatments. The kindness and care he received at MCH gave him the support and courage to face the challenges of his medical condition.

This story is a testament to the impact MCH has had on individuals and families in our community. Your contributions, both big and small, have helped shape these stories and create a healthier, more compassionate community for generations to come.
