Patient Story: Maria
In early 2022, Maria (name changed for patient confidentiality) was facing a stage 3 invasive ductal carcinoma diagnosis – with no way to access or afford health insurance. After having a double mastectomy as an uninsured patient, Maria thankfully found our primary care partner, MASS Clinic, through JaxCareConnect. MASS Clinic sent an oncology referral to WeCareJax and we got her established with Baptist MD Anderson Cancer Center for her ongoing radiation and chemotherapy treatment. Maria is currently still undergoing her treatment and we are so grateful for the volunteer providers and hospital partners who are providing her compassionate care.
