A year ago, I had a devastating stroke in the middle of the night. I was working full-time when I had the stroke, but after I used up my 12 weeks of leave, I was fired and suddenly had no insurance and couldn’t qualify for government assistance. I became one of the people who fall through the cracks. Because I had volunteered at the Community Care Clinic before, I turned to them and qualified for help. I do not know what I would do without the staff at the clinic who take care of me – and all of their patients – with such professionalism and compassion. The Clinic has been a lifesaver for me.

The John P. Murray Community Care Clinic provides healthcare services to low income, uninsured adults in Stanly County. The Clinic becomes the “medical home” for these adults for both medical care and medications for our neighbors in need who fall between the cracks. More than 2,000 patient visits occur each year.
Your gifts to the Stanly Health Foundation help support the work of the Clinic. Since the clinic opened in 1998, the Foundation has provided more than $680,000 in operating support for the low income, uninsured patients at the clinic.
