Young Mother Receives Gift of Surgery
SANTA ROSA, Calif. –Nancy Arrango, 35, was legally blind for a decade. When she closed her right eye, she couldn’t see anything out of her left. She had a hard time caring for her children, and she lost her ability to drive and to work. But without health insurance, cataract surgery was out of reach.
Late last year, Sutter Santa Rosa Surgery & Endoscopy Center and Operation Access partnered to give Nancy the Gift of Surgery. Sutter Health collaborates with Operation Access and other community health clinics every year to provide surgeries and procedures for uninsured patients based on their medical condition, health status and financial need.
Today, Nancy has a new lease on life.
