Indian County residents in need speak about care funded by IRCHD

“I have no doubt that I wouldn’t be here right now to write this if it wasn’t for the We Care program and Ms. Leigh Anne Riddle, RN.  After moving back to Florida, I ended up in the “pre-existing condition” category with regards to health insurance and didn’t know where to turn when I was diagnosed with Stage 3 cancer and Raeder Syndrome.  My former doctor told me about this program and I had nothing to lose.  I was pleasantly surprised by the courteous and very professional help that I obtained from Ms. Riddle and the program.  She was able to connect me with the right doctors in short order to get my treatment started.  And even more importantly, I was no longer an unfortunate “statistic”.  Ms. Riddle’s social skills and knowledge in how to get things done far surpassed my expectations.”
Thomas M. Tetrault, We Care patient

“Everybody was so nice, it made me very happy.  I feel like a new person.  I can look people in the eye instead of looking away.  People don’t stare at me any more.  Thank you so much!”
Ronald M. Shaulis, Jr., We Care patient (Treated by Dr. Ralph Rosato, M.D.)

“Before We Care and Leigh Anne helped me get my cataract surgery with Dr. Mallon at Advanced Eye Care, my eyes were so bad I could not see at all.  Now I see great and Dr. Mallon and his staff were great.  Thank you for everything; it has made my life so much better and clearer.”
Cathy Tennant, We Care patient
