BMMF Pays for Patient’s Utility Bill

We received the following from Sparta Cancer Center:

Dr. Chatiwala has a patient who is considerably behind on his electric bill.  He is an active patient with us, receiving chemotherapy and unfortunately not doing well & has been in & out of the hospital.

He has not been working, nor has his wife due to being out on disability & having cancer herself,  limited funds & no extended family.  I was hoping this would be something the Memorial Fund could help with.

The utility bill was paid in full and we wish the family the best moving forward.

BMMF Helps Family with Medical Supplies

September 21, 2016

We were contacted by the Sparta Cancer Center business administrator about a family that was in need of some medical supplies. A patient, who is being cared for by her daughter, was in need of some medical supplies. Their insurance company was not going to approve the purchase, so BMMF financed the cost to the family so they could obtain the necessary equipment.
