Things are heating up

Hello friends, It gets more exciting every time I walk into the clinic. We now have 4 people on the life saving medicines to cure Hepatitis C and 4 more in the application process. Two of our new friends learned that they have cured themselves with healthy lifestyles and good immune systems. This happens in 10-20% of those who are infected the virus. We are applying for more grants, and beginning the plans for our first Health Fair which will be held on the parking lot on January 19th, 2015. We have 2 aquariums being prepared to provide nice tranquil colors to the waiting room. We have begun to clean up the apartments upstairs, in preparation for a nice “face lift” to the rooms. I am fortunate to have an Uncle with great experience, and multiple degrees in Engineering, volunteering his time to draw the necessary plans for us to move forward. Thanks Uncle Bill. Our purple awnings have been ordered and should be up in the next 6 weeks. There will be FREE viral load blood tests drawn at the office on Wednesday all day and Thursday morning. On Thursday afternoon, we will be at Pinellas Hope drawing blood to help the homeless population qualify for possible treatments, and […] readmore

Update

Hello Friends, We are excited to report that we have now been open long enough to get approval to start at least 3 patients on therapy for Hepatitis C. We are grateful for Gilead Sciences and Support Path. We have also just been awarded a Dr. Martin Luther King Day of Service Award that will fund our first Health Fair on January 19th, 2015. We will need volunteers for that, so please call Chris Schombs at 727-228-1650 to sign up. We have also been nominated for the Diamond Award from the LGBT Chamber of Commerce. We are so grateful for the recognition and support. Please consider donating to Love the Golden Rule Inc. Every dollar will help us treat and raise awareness of the 2% of our population who are infected with Hepatitis C, and 75% of them are unaware. Please get screened for Hepatitis C if you were born between 1945-1965, or if you have every experimented with drug use. Remember, Be Happy, Help Others Facebook Twitter Google+ LinkedIn readmore

We are now seeing patients

October 13th, 2014. Last week was awesome. I had the chance to begin seeing those who have been waiting to get care. As I’ve told you in the past, nearly all of the patients seeing me have limited resources and have barely been getting by in life. They have been working on health habits, getting sober, stopping smoking, and eating healthier foods. We are now raising funds to provide lab work support for these patients. This is where you as the concerned follower and supporter can help us. Each patient will need to have a blood test known as a viral load. the Health Department will not pay for this. With the assistance of Gordon from Hepatitismain.com, we have found a lab to do these for $90.00.Patients will need at least 4 of theses during their treatment. The test normally costs $400.00. Other labs are needed as well.The problem is that lab is in Tampa, requiring our patients to spend the entire day on buses to get there and back, and most don’t have the fare. For us to help each patient, we need about $400 for labs, and better transportation (A Van) to help people get there. Oh yes, we are aggressively trying to get local labs to compete, […] readmore

WE ARE OPEN TO SEE PATIENTS!

It’s Monday, October 6th, 2014. We are opening our doors this morning. We have over 200 patients waiting to be seen for Hepatitis C and many other patients expressing interest in the “Better My Image” or BMI project. Thank you to all of you who have kept the faith and donated to us. Our challenge now it to find funding to pay for lab work for those who just can’t come up with the money. We have been able to negotiate a price of $90. 00 for a viral load,(the standard cost is $400.00), and everyone will need at least 4. We are working on possibly having a lab right here in the office as we grow. Again, Thank you so much for your generosity and support. Please help us any way you can, Even a dollar donation will help. Have a wonderful week. I will now start weekly updates, letting you know our progress. Be Happy, Help Others Dr. Bob Facebook Twitter Google+ LinkedIn readmore

Almost there

Here is our latest progress update…..The A/C unit was stolen one month ago, in broad daylight. Which wasn’t our favorite thing that happened. To keep things consistent, two weekends ago we were broken into not once, but twice. In the same day! We pray that the one who broke in didn’t get hurt to bad falling onto concrete from the eight foot ceiling from which they came. Seeing the problems we were going to have, we now are the proud owners of a brand new security system. Complete with four shiny cameras to catch all those pesky little intruders. Yay us! On a brighter note, we have about half of the windows installed. It’s amazing how different the closed off upstairs looks with light coming in. Speaking of new things, we had our phone lines installed as well. Our new number is 727-228-1650. We also have a fax number 727-228-1690. Hepatitismain.com has a toll free number too 1-855-403-HEPC. So if you’re in the mood go get a tax right off, we can give you a tax receipt since we now have our 501 (c)3 non-profit status!!!!  Which by all accounts makes us official. A couple more weeks and we should be up and operational. We are looking forward to helping our community in any way we can. JoJo – VP […] readmore

A week of ups and downs

Hello, fellow Love the Golden Rule Supporters This week got us much closer to being ready to open. The windows are in the warehouse, and the contractor is doing his bet to have them in this week. The greatest news is that we are now a certified non-profit corporation. We received the letter on Friday.  Now, anyone who has been waiting to donate can now do so with a tax deduction,. The bad news is that we were broken into on Saturday morning. I did not know that anything had been taken until I went to repair the window.. My circular saw was gone. We then attended the Metropolitan Charities GALA, (which was an awesome event), and upon returning to secure the building, we had been robbed again. This time the thief took all of my tools. The Police Officer (Officer Reeves),was so kind and helpful. He stayed at the building while Jojo and I went to a 24 hour Walmart to get supplies, (a new drill and bolts) to secure the building. Thank you to the St Petersburg Police Department. This will not hold us back from our mission to provide services to those in need. Thank you for your patience. We have over 150 patients waiting on us to open. […] readmore
