Supporting Self-Sufficiency Sometimes all that’s needed to keep people healthy and engaged in our community is the equipment to care for themselves. HERO, Healthcare Equipment Recycling Organization is a six-time Medica Foundation grant recipient because of their significant assistance to individuals with disabilities. The most recent grant helped them serve over 5,000 individuals by providing affordable or no-cost medical equipment and supplies. They waived over $80,000 in fees for individuals with verified medical and financial needs and collected more than 190,000 pounds of medical equipment. HERO is a resource for thousands of individuals, whether their need is short and simple, or more complex and long-term. Strength to Stand Ben was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in his early twenties, just months before marrying his sweetheart, Caitlin. HERO provided a wheelchair, shower chair, Hoyer lift and a special sit-to-stand lift that helped him stand and regain strength in his legs. Thanks to this equipment, therapy and treatments, Ben was using a walker by Thanksgiving, and by Christmas, needed only a cane to walk.
