I was diagnosed with lymphedma in July of 2005. I continued to work, but in September of 2008 I became very ill and almost died. I was forced to retire early because of my chronic health problems. I struggled. I was introduced to the Sheridan Senior Center’s Home Delivered Meals and Transportation services. With this support I was able to stay out of the hospital. Days I did not feel well, I could count on a decent meal. Although I had another setback that required surgery, my lab results were good so I did not need to wait. I attribute this to the good nutritious meals I was getting. The Sheridan Mini Bus got me to all of my appointments and to the stores so I could keep living at home.
