Susan’s Story

Make an Impact

Mercy Health - Cincinnati, OH

Your gift helped Susan when she was fighting breast cancer

Before being diagnosed with breast cancer, Susan Jones Satterwhite had no idea how expensive an illness like that could be.

She had insurance, but because she couldn’t work during the radiation, chemotherapy and surgery she received at Mercy Health - Fairfield Hospital, Susan started falling behind on her bills including utilities and her mortgage. And then there were co-pays and deductibles adding up as well.

But you were there for her. Because of your gift, Susan got the help she needed with her bills, including food and gas to get to her appointments. She was able to focus on the most important thing—getting well.

“I’ll admit, before I got sick I wasn’t sure if donations were making it to the places most needed,” Susan said. “But now I can assure you they do.”


 “Without all of the help I received I’d probably be on the streets. The donations you are making are helping real people with real needs.”


Susan knows first-hand how important your contributions are, and she is eternally grateful.

“Without all that assistance, I don’t know what I would have done,” she said. “I just want donors to know this really helps. Without them, a lot of people wouldn’t even be here because they wouldn’t be able to afford the treatments. I was lucky because I have insurance.

“I’m so happy there are people in the world who can make those contributions,” Susan said. “I want donors to know that I thank them from the bottom of my heart. I appreciate them so much.”
