A New Day Begins....


Healthcare isn't a luxury.  Those of us with health insurance go to sleep each night with security of knowing if we need to go to the doctor, we're covered.  Shouldn't everyone have that same comfort?

Would you consider making a gift that will make a real difference in someone's life?  It costs BVMI just $1,500 to provide healthcare to a patient for an entire year.  That's a modest amount for a heartful of hope!
