According to the CDC, one in three Americans report that their family is experiencing the financial burden of medical care; a statistic that has been commonly referenced during the health care reform debate. iHealthcareupdates.com announced today Clifford Bruce of Divine Colorado as the recipient of this quarter's iHelpCare donation Program. iHealthcareupdates.com directly paid 100% of Clifford’s outstanding medical bill to the Denver VA Medical Center. “Supporting those in need with financial difficulties due to Medical challenges is critical to helping support our veterans, and that’s why I am so pleased to announce this donation recipient today.” said CJ Evrard program founder.
Clifford Bruce is a 62-year-old veteran, who spent the last several years battling various medical issues, and most recently was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer.
Clifford spent many years working in the real estate field; however following the country’s economic downturn, Clifford fell on difficult times financially & health wise. In the summer of 2012 Clifford was diagnosed prostate cancer.
Clifford has been unable to pay his outstanding debt and lives in constant fear his current wages will be garnered due to his outstanding medical debt to the VA Medical Center. Clifford spent years travelling across the country for jobs to keep himself afloat and his medical bills at bay.
