A Bright Future

January 2017 

Dale never asked for anything, including help after a series of car accidents. But she mentioned her pain after Mass one day and a parishioner directed her to the pharmacy program at the Society of St. Vincent de Paul.

Because of your generosity, that debilitating pain she feels from cervical injuries she’s received from two car accidents is now manageable, both physically and financially. “On a level from 1-10, my pain is a constant 4 or 5 with my fingers. They never stop hurting. I don’t know what I would do if I didn’t have medication to manage the pain.”

But you did more than help her pay for medication. You helped her only child graduate from college with a degree in engineering management. Dale says, “The money I would have to spend on medication went directly to my son’s education. I’m so proud of him and so thankful for you.  If it had not been for you, there would have been no way we could have afforded our medicines. I would have chosen my son’s education and done without my medication.”

Life can change in a second because of someone else’s decision. Another driver’s decision hurt Dale and could have damaged her family’s future, but your support helped secure that future for generations to come.
