Supporting First Hand Changes Lives

Ultimately, health care is personal. At some point in our lives, we will go to a hospital or a clinic as a friend, sister, father, grandmother, spouse, or neighbor. First Hand advocates and helps those children and families who cannot access health or care because of financial constraints. Our generous donors make it possible to serve these communities.

Health care, especially for children, has been a passion of mine for a long time. As a parent, you need to be there 100% for your child as they go through treatments and recover, and there’s no time or energy to cope with the financial hardships that can present themselves during this time. I support First Hand because of its mission of bringing assistance to children and families when they need it most.

I donate to First Hand because I believe it's important to give back, whether that be your time or service, and what better way to give back than to help children receive necessary and often-times life-saving medical equipment and treatment.

As a Registered Nurse in the NICU, I know the immense burden that a child's health care needs can place on a family financially, emotionally and physically. It is wonderful to see an organization committed to giving back to these families in need during such a stressful time in their lives. Health care is not just about caring for the physical body; it is about caring for the whole person, family unit and community.
