Compassion Works Medical has a special mission to change the lives of the rare genetic disease community by supporting a genuine helping hand with insurance coverage challenges. Over the past years at Compassion Works Medical, a blessing in disguise had come across my path – I have expanded my support to all kinds of special diseases that require medical foods and enteral nutrition, including cancer, ALS, TBI, etc. It is truly rewarding and my inspiration grows stronger and stronger to help those people find a way to afford and stay on diet.
