Meet Mendee who was referred to Mission of Mercy because she was having health issues with her eyes and vision. She was seen by Dr. Villarreal who found the problem to be a staph infection which he helped clear up through medication. While coming to Mission of Mercy, she also found out she was diabetic with an A1C of over 14. She had no idea! Mendee listened to her doctors, changed her eating habits, attended the Diabetes Management Classes where she learned about sugars, carbohydrates, and how to manage her medication. Her A1C is now below 10!

Mendee also receives her medication through our Medication Assistance Program. This program, in partnership with several pharmaceutical companies, allows low-income patients to receive their medications at no cost. Without this program, Mendee would not be able to afford her medications. With medication and education, Mendee said “she is on the right track to being healthier!”

“Having Mission of Mercy in my life has been a big change and they are a blessing as far as providing the education, medication assistance, and appointments I need. I am thankful to everyone.”
