Mary knew there was a medication that could prolong her life, but she could not afford it. A 68-year-old diabetic woman recently diagnosed with early stage kidney failure, Mary woke each day overwhelmed with anxiety and deep depression.
Mary was devastated at the diagnosis. The knowledge she could not afford a new class of drug SGLT2 inhibitors, which could prolong her life, caused her to lose her breath.
She wasn't going to die prematurely because of kidney disease, she was going to die because she was poor.
Then Mary learned about NeedyMeds.
With web-based searchable databases filled with ways to save on medicine and healthcare, NeedyMeds was able to help her find her a way to get the medication she needed. Her kidneys began to improve. Her anxiety decreased. Depression lifted.
Among other things, she was thrilled and hopeful that she may very well live long enough to see her eight-year-old granddaughter graduate high school.
