  • Title: Patient Stories | Virginia Association of Free & Charitable Clinics
    Descriptive info: Suzanne.. Until a few years ago, Suzanne had health insurance and a full-time job.. Then in 2005 Suzanne received the heartbreaking news that her mom had cancer.. Devastated, she took time off work to help care for her mom.. She was let go not long after, and lost her health insurance.. For the next few years Suzanne cared for her mom while struggling with health issues of her own.. High blood pressure and seizures from a car accident years earlier landed Suzanne in the hospital over and over, until she could no longer afford to provide for her own medical care.. Without any other option, Suzanne finally went to the Loudoun Free Clinic.. During Suzanne’s first visit an alarming discovery was made that she had serious blockage that prevented blood from getting to her brain, leaving her at risk of stroke and even death.. Two volunteer neurologists confirmed the diagnosis and she was scheduled  ...   but was unable to afford the cost of a doctor’s visit and medications.. The Free Clinic staff welcomed me then just like they do now.. They are professional and courteous and I consider them just like family.. They have been a great health care provider for me and for so many in our community and ‘free’ doesn’t mean you get less care, I feel I get better service than I would with insurance.. They motivate me to take care of myself through the fitness programs and educational classes they provide.. I’ve learned how lifestyle changes such as exercise and proper nutrition can help me live longer and stronger.. That motivates me to help others.. As a Pastor, I take this message into the community as my personal testimony that if you want to improve your health – you can.. The Free Clinic has given me a chance to be healthy and stay healthy..
