Did You Know?

"In the ICU it is often necessary to rapidly insert a breathing tube (endotracheal tube) for patients who have developed respiratory failure. This can be a difficult procedure in some patients, with the risk of a delay in providing support for breathing. The Glidescope represents new technology that increases the safety and reliability of this procedure in these patients."

Dr. Brad Lauderdale, Pulmonologist
Affinity Medical Group

The Glidescope was funded through the Foundation. Your donations make grants like these possible. More Recent Grants

Your donations recently supported an 80 year old woman in need of a diabetic eye exam and unable to afford it. When our patient financial counselor shared that she could receive her exam thanks to your generous donor support, she said, simply and repeatedly:

"You saved my life."
