Christie’s Journey From Hospital to Home

Moments of Impact: Christie’s Story

Thanks to the dedication of our team and the support of caring donors, FSL’s Transitional Care Program has made a tangible difference in the lives of countless individuals like Christie. Despite facing significant challenges, including the cancellation of her insurance coverage following surgery, Christie found hope and support through FSL’s intervention. With the assistance of her patient advocate, she received crucial medical supplies from the Kindness Closet and regained access to essential healthcare services.

Out of nowhere... there she was. I call her, 'My Angel, Angela'.
