When Faye lost her husband Fred on Father’s Day, she was compelled to do something for others through a donation. After careful consideration, she called Marshall’s Community Care Network (CCN).
“When Faye called, I explained to her that donations are used to help chronically ill patients that can’t afford things like blood pressure monitors, glucose monitors, walkers, wheelchairs, etc. She loved the idea that patients would benefit from her donation,” said Sherry Guerin, Administrative Assistant.
Faye mailed her gift that day.
“My husband Fred was an amazing man. He served our country in three wars and spoke five languages. He was also a generous person and would have been happy with my decision to help our neighbors in need,” she said.
“Managing a chronic illness is challenging. Juggling multiple doctors, each with their own recommendations and expectations, complicated lists of medications, and orders to eat better and exercise. It can be overwhelming, and when you are ill, it can seem impossible. This is where Marshall’s Community Care Network helps. CCN was developed to assist people with health care coordination and management. Various services are offered depending on needs and a patient’s desired level of involvement,” Sherry explained.
Marshall Foundation for Community Health is grateful to residents like Faye. “Without our donors, we wouldn’t be able to provide the funds that support programs like Marshall’s Community Care Network. Health and wellness are an imperative part of our county’s prosperity and future. The healthier our residents, the better off our county as a whole is,” pointed out Jamie Johnson, Executive Director of Marshall Foundation for Community Health.
