Sarah, one of Sister Rosanne Popp, M.D.’s patients explains, “Before I found CHRISTUS St. Mary’s Clinic, I thought I was going to have to live the rest of my life feeling as if someone is sitting on my chest. I’m 50 years old, I don’t have extra money to see a doctor or buy asthma medication. St. Mary’s Clinic is a Godsend, I am now able regularly visit a doctor who I can afford, the Clinic helped me find medication to control my asthma. This is the first time in my life that I can take a breath and not wheeze. Thank you for helping me manage and live with asthma.”
