Clinic patient without means to pay for prescriptions - 1/9/15

A patient from the Medical Outreach Clinic of Summerville came to the clinic just prior to Christmas.  She is a single Mom who recently escaped form an abusive relationship with her two children.  She was staying with family but was unemployed at the moment due to health reasons, in part related to her situation.  She was prescribed several medications by the clinic doctor but did not think she would have the means to pay for them.  She hoped family, who was also of limited means, could help but they could not.  Ashley Ridge Church partners with a local pharmacy in Summerville who will help by giving discounts to patients we refer.  Change for a Dollar helped this woman out by covering the cost of her prescriptions.

Amount: Four Prescriptions - $100
