William didn't know how poor his health was until he went to the emergency room with a headache that wouldn't go away.
Tests revealed William had congestive heart failure, high blood pressure and diabetes. But because he had no insurance, he couldn't afford the multiple medications he would need to get his symptoms under control.
At the Clinic, William can get the care he needs for free. "I usually come every 3 weeks for my blood pressure checkup, to make sure my diabetes is under control, and to get my medication too," William says.
He says his health has gotten better since becoming a patient. "I can breathe more, I can do more things, I don't feel sick all the time – it's a big impact." That means he can be more involved with his son. "He's very athletic. Now I can go to his events."
Thanks to your support, patients like William never have to pay for the care they need.
