Since launching our first fund in 2004, HealthWell has provided financial assistance – and hope – to over 164,000 patients, many of whom could not have afforded their treatments without HealthWell’s support: individuals like Keith from Florida, who stopped his medication and risked going blind in order not to become a financial drain to his family; or Nancy from Indiana, who was diagnosed with Stage 4 non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and couldn’t afford her treatments following a 200% increase in her insurance premium. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, Keith, Nancy and thousands of others now have access to life-saving and life-changing medications.
One of the best ways to understand how HealthWell is making a difference is to hear directly from the people we've helped. If you have been assisted by HealthWell directly, or have seen someone feel better because of receiving a grant from HealthWell, we invite you to share your story.
