Thomasville - Eighty-nine-year old Sally Ruth Alley is dependent on Social Security. She says, "The only income I have is my Social Security, and I'm trying so hard to make it on my Social Security check."
But prescriptions were taking one third of her check every month, and she didn't know how she was going to get by. "I never dreamed that I would be on so much medication and that it would be so expensive," Alley says.
So she turned to the Lawson Neel Med Bank, which helps people who can't afford prescriptions get them for free. "There's more people out there asking for funds than ever before," says Board President Ed Elam. He continues, "They will tell their doctor that they are low on funds and are having a hard time meeting their bills, and he refers them to us."
But now people like Sally Ruth Alley, who receive help from the med bank, no longer have to choose between pills and bills.
"I am the most thankful for this than I have been for anything that I can actually recall in my life," says Alley. "It has helped me tremendously. I couldn't make it, I couldn't make it, if I hadn't got help with this."
And neither could the 700 other clients the med bank serves. Most of the med bank clients are over the age of 45. It is a non-profit organization that operates primarily on donations. You can reach the Lawson Neel Med Bank at (229) 226-8114.
