When R&B/Soul Singer Diane W. Carter received a new heart in 2015, she shared how grateful she felt for a second chance at life: “since I’ve had the heart, it keeps me alive. I wake up every morning.”
But, after covering the high costs of her surgery, her living expenses began to add up – and so did her medical issues: “I stayed in my car for a little over a year… [and] I have to be at dialysis at 5:00, Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.”
With mounting financial pressure, she sought the help of Tzu Chi Washington DC volunteers, who promised to get her long-term help. But, the bond she ended up forging with one of them has become lasting.
