One of our patients, a 48-year old woman who has been on HIV care and treatment since 2006, was recently diagnosed with an esophagus condition (proximal esophageal stricture) that interferes with swallowing, including taking her life-saving antiretroviral medication every day. An endoscopy and biopsy are needed, however she does not have the money to pay for those procedures.


A male patient, 44-years old, is the breadwinner for his family of four plus two sisters, two brothers, and his mother. He has been living with HIV for 17 years and ulcerative colitis for 10 years, his condition recently brought on complications requiring intensive inpatient care and multiple surgeries. His medical bills are beyond his financial reach. 

Another patient, a single mother in HIV care is struggling to stay afloat, has anemia and painful abdominal distension, yet she doesn’t have the money to pay for more definite diagnoses, let alone enough money to keep food on the table for her and her young son. 


Through the FACES Patient Care Fund, we are able to help pay for the diagnostics and treatment needs that are not covered by institutional funding. Your valued donation to the FACES Patient Care Fund goes a long way and makes a meaningful difference in individual patient lives.
