FODAC Clients Give Back for Others
When Sheila Murigo's husband Tony was diagnosed with Guillain-Barre Syndrome, the couple turned to FODAC for equipment and support to keep Tony comfortably and safely at home. Tony passed away last June, and Sheila donated the equipment he received from FODAC as well as his power chair and hospital bed. "It was a good way to honor Tony, to help FODAC help others."

FODAC relies heavily on donations of used home medical equipment (HME) that it refurbishes and redistributes to those in need. If you have used HME that could help others, you can drop it off at FODAC's office or call Irma at 770.491.9014 x114 to schedule a pick-up.
