Local Non-Profit Medical Clinic Invites Community To Participate In National Movement
This holiday season most of us will spend time gift shopping, visiting with family and enjoying holiday parties. But what if you were a single mother with diabetes and you are struggling with the decision to either purchase insulin or the toy your son wants for Christmas? Or if you are an unemployed veteran who has to choose between putting gas in his car to get to a job interview or purchasing an inhaler to control his asthma? Or maybe you are an uninsured student who is suffering from depression and cannot afford to see a counselor?
As we rejoice this season, many of our North Coast Health patients who are challenged with these situations are not so joyful. Patients like Arlene, who before coming to North Coast Health, suffered two devastating losses – the death of her sister and mother within five months of each other. Arlene knew she needed help, but couldn’t afford the cost of a doctor’s appointment on a limited income as a restaurant server. A concerned co-worker told her about North Coast Health. Because of the care Arlene received at North Coast Health, Arlene, who is also an artist, found her inspiration again and will enjoy the holiday season.
North Coast Health, a faith-based charitable medical clinic in Lakewood, has been providing quality medical care and healing to those most in need for over 30 years. North Coast Health invites the community of Lakewood to give back to help patients like ours get the high quality medical care they deserve. GivingTuesday is a national day to celebrate generosity and giving back. Make your gift by visiting us at www.northcoasthealth.org and click the DONATE button at the top of the homepage. You can also mail your gift to: North Coast Health, 16110 Detroit Avenue, Lakewood OH 44107.
