Recently I had some problems with my leg and when I went in to see the doc they told me that I had a blood clot in it.... I went on a long car trip and didn't move enough (I will never do that again) not exactly what I wanted to hear. I have had trouble finding a good job (recent college grad and crappy economy = no job with benefits) and hence no health insurance so when they told me the medicine I needed was $1,100.00 for ten doses (I also had two refills) I literally freaked out.
Thank goodness I live in North Dakota where if people don't use their medication they can donate it to a pharmacy (if it is sealed in individual packages) and people like me can get it for free. The pharmacists at the clinic I went to helped me get in touch with Oliver and he helped me get the first seven doses. He didn't have any more doses available but I was so happy with my seven doses I didn't really focus on the fact I didn't have enough. Then something more amazing happened... on my way home Oliver called me and said he called around and found me more medicine and that I would just have to come pick it up! He was such a wonderful person I had to make him a thank you card. He was my silver lining on a really shitty cloudy day.
Here is what I sent him:
It's a lot like the Mother's Day card I sent my mom, but her idea for the sentiment made me want to make it.
Here is the inside:
Thank you mom for the wonderful idea and like I said before, thank God for wonderful people and their willingness to help!
