My wife, Doreen, and I learned about CHM on the Fox News Network’s “Huckabee” show. We checked it out and signed up immediately. 

In June 2013 Doreen began experiencing some bloating and went to the doctor’s office. Doctors performed a series of tests—including a CT scan—that showed she had a seven-inch-long mass on her right ovary. We were devastated and spent the next two weeks in anguish as we waited to see a specialist. Doreen’s surgery was scheduled for June 25. 

Meanwhile, our interaction with CHM was simple and easy. Staff members assured us that the money would be there when we needed it and told us the staff was praying for us. 

When we told the surgeon and hospital that we were self-pay patients and were members of CHM, at first they were a bit confused. They contacted the ministry to learn more and hung up the phone feeling much more comfortable with the concept. However, they required a 50 percent upfront payment in order to give us a discount of nearly $21,000. 

CHM worked with the hospital to make sure the necessary amount was shared via overnight shipping the day of the surgery. Its arrival was prompt and I could tell that the providers were impressed. I remember thinking that CHM must have been a breath of fresh air. 

We praise God that Doreen is recovering nicely and has returned to her daily exercise routine. Though she had to have a hysterectomy, there was no cancer! 

The simplicity and efficiency of CHM is how health care is supposed to be. Thank you for all you do. We love this ministry!
