A Sentara Leigh Hospital Medical Worker suddenly fell ill and began suffering debilitating symptoms due to a chronic gastrointestinal disease. She desperately needed a visit to a GI specialist in order to obtain medicine to get the symptoms under control. However, the family was struggling financially after her husband lost his job due to COVID-19 and they were unable to afford an outstanding bill from a previous visit to this specialist. The Medical Worker was informed that she could not make an appointment until her bill was paid in full. The River Ellis Foundation covered the outstanding medical bill so that she could obtain the medication she needed to improve her symptoms and continue working as the sole provider for her family. #giveasunrise
