This week we are joined by Emma Perlmutter as she shares a story about how the Imagine! Crisis Management team helped a family get the support they needed.

 


Crisis Funding has primarily been used to assist with overdue rent and utilities. This month, funding was also used to help a family track a heart arrhythmia for their child. This child cannot utilize traditional medical equipment due to her sensitivities to the adhesive on the equipment. We funded the purchase of a watch to track her heartbeat. This allows her to remain active and not have to carry her cellphone everywhere she goes. We also funded the data plan that comes with the watch because the doctor needs one year worth of data. The family could not afford to add another device to their phone plan for an entire year. I met the mom at a T-Mobile to pay for the data plan. I could see in person how much this child loves to run around. It was clear this device was the best fit for her lifestyle.
