Two year’s ago, Arturo walked into Mission of Mercy. Like many, he is grateful for the many blessing in his life. Having been experiencing pain in his right side he was at a loss on where to go for help. Arturo was employed but could not afford health insurance and other than an expensive trip to the emergency room he wasn’t sure what to do.
Then he saw Mission of Mercy on television and he called us for help. Our volunteer staff of doctors and nurses were more than ready to step up! After testing, Arturo learned he had Hepatitis C. While curable, the treatment is expensive. Medication alone ranges between $90,000 and $100,000. Through Mission of Mercy, Arturo was able to apply for a program that provided him with the expensive but necessary medication to treat and cure Hepatitis C. By the beginning of 2017 Arturo was well on his way to being healthy again.
“I have a second chance at life now thanks to God and Mission of Mercy being there for me every step of the way. I know this disease could have killed me, but it didn’t. I’m here for my wife and kids. I will never forget Mission of Mercy for being there for me when I needed them the most.”
