Giving to Beacon Christian Community Health Center Helps Save and Transform Lives
Miracles are part of our daily experience here at Beacon Christian Community Health Center. As a continuing or new friend of Beacon, we hope you understand your generous support, inspiration, and encouragement are part of our daily miracles. You help ensure a healthier community with more individuals and families touched.
Let me share a story, an experience that gets to the heart of our mission. I was in the hospital recently seeing a Beacon patient who had arrived in the Emergency Department after a full cardiac arrest. Everyone in the hospital said she had no chance. She was intubated and unresponsive, having been "dead" (and thus oxygen-deprived) for almost 15 minutes at home - an eternity in this circumstance.
Why am I sharing this with you? Easy, by the grace of God, after much prayer from a number of our staff and friends, and prayers for and with the family, she woke up. She had the ventilator removed, and as of then was fully awake and alert, awaiting a rehab facility placement. Her son, who is her caretaker, was in tears. He was so grateful to us and to God for not giving up on her, despite the impossible odds.
We experience the life cycle here at Beacon Christian Community Health Center. Births. Wellness in mind, body, and spirit. Illness, trauma, and disease. And ultimately death. You help us make a difference as individuals and families in our community live life fully and with grace.
