“I was diagnosed with stage 4 cancerous tumors in my brain and my lung, all terminal. For several months, until my coverage kicked in, I had no insurance. The bills skyrocketed and with chemo and radiation treatment I could barely think straight. My PAF case manager was an angel who walked me patiently through the time-consuming application process, never wavering in her efforts. I can’t find enough words to thank her.”
"Not only did we face life threatening situations, but we were faced with tens of thousands in medical bills after our insurance company denied all claims from two separate hospital visits as due to pre-existing conditions. PAF patiently and thoroughly explained the appeals process, and then coached us through negotiation of bills from the hospital and more than a dozen other providers. They even contacted my provider to advocate on our behalf, adding credibility and professionalism to our ultimately successful negotiations. As a result we saw our total costs for all related bills reduced to about a third of the original amount."
"On behalf of my father, I thank you. I thank whoever is the source of your grants, and all employees and/or volunteers. My father’s surgery was a success and he is on the road to recovery. Your generosity of financial support is greatly appreciated. My father is looking forward to celebrating his 61st wedding anniversary next month and enjoys his four children, six grandchildren and pet dogs."
