When I asked if I could take her photo, Caroline instead gave me the flyer from George’s funeral and asked that I include his photo instead.
Her story is not unusual. She had to wait weeks for Medicare to approve expensive BIPAP breathing equipment for George. By the time he got it, he only used it a single day. Then he went into hospice.
“I hate to have this equipment go to waste,” she said. “These things are so expensive. I would like to know somebody else can use it. To throw that away is sinful.” D4D will make sure her wish is realized. If you, too, have equipment you’d like to donate and you live in the Chicago area, let us know.
