Every Dollar Makes A Difference
For the second year in a row the team at the Criag Medicaid Office collaborated to raise funds to support our Red Rose Program. Many of the employees have been personally affected by breast cancer and they are committed to annually support Red Rose. This year they raised $1,305 dollars!
Last year the gift from the Medicaid office helped patients like Clara. After being diagnosed with breast cancer, Clara sent her teenage grandchildren to live with relatives out of state for seven months while she underwent surgery and chemotherapy. She had been their legal custodian since they were infants, and they were the center of her life. Unable to keep working, she took a leave from her job as a casino housekeeper and moved into a single room to reduce expenses. In August, with rent and utility assistance from the R.E.D. Rose Program, she was able to reunite her family, move into a new apartment, and begin radiation treatment. Two months later, Clara was strong enough to return to work and is now able to see her grandchildren grow up.
We appreciate the support from our community. We are so fortunate to have businesses like the Medicaid office donate their time and dollars in support of our Healing Mission!!! If you know someone who would like to support our Red Rose Program or host a third party event, please contact our Health Foundation: 702.616.5758.
