On June 28, 2012, Wade P was rushed by ambulance to the hospital unable to breathe. He was diagnosed as having pneumonia. Wade spent 8 days in the hospital without insurance to pay for the costs. He also lost 10 days of work which put him in deep financial turmoil. Wade was working at a job that did not provide benefits and was at loss how to recover financially from his hospitalization. The Rob Benzon Foundation paid two month’s rent on behalf of Wade and this enabled him to use his income for other critical needs to get back on his feet. When Wade learned of the help, he wrote, “I am absolutely speechless. I was not expecting such generosity. Thank you so so much.” We told Wade that the real thanks go to the Rob Benzon Foundation donors, sponsors, and underwriters.
