A Thanksgiving Wish: Food, Shelter and Medicine
In America, the richest country in the world, 33% of people can’t afford food, shelter, or medical care…and that includes medicine, as reported in a Market Watch article covering the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s national survey. That’s a disgrace.
We know, and remind you almost every week, that tens of million of people aren’t filling prescriptions because of cost each year. Many of them, including the elderly, can’t because food must come first.
It’s my strongest hope that our work at PharmacyChecker helps Americans get the medication prescribed to them, but at a price that also allows them to sit down to a turkey dinner in a peaceful home to celebrate Thanksgiving this year.
Happy Thanksgiving!food, hunger
