“P.A.W. Union has made a major impact in my life, has given me a voice, and my healthcare needs have been met like never before.
Before P.A.W. I thought my medical care was as good as it was going to get. Immediately through P.A.W. I was empowered by learning my rights, became more knowledgeable about my many diagnoses and of the care I deserve, and was given a voice.
I’m so thankful, when I’m lost and confused I can make a call to Jimella, who is Patients’ Advocates’ & Wellness Union’s director, and my personal advocate. Often doctors come in and overwhelm you with terms and information that you don’t understand.
Jimella helps calm me down and puts everything in a way that I can understand, she is so caring and compassionate, and has become like a mother-figure.
Too, when a doctor refuses to listen or won’t provide me with individualized care I instantly call Jimella. I know she’s gonna have all the real facts and is truly familiar with my case. I am very thankful for Jimella and to be a member of P.A.W., it makes life and battling Lupus a lot easier, and it lifts a lot of the stress that comes with dealing with our healthcare system.”
