“I just wanted to share a happy story about one of my patients. He gained three pounds this past month and contributes it to drinking the Ensure he received through the Samaritan Foundations Patient Support Program. He was so excited to share this with me and is hopeful he may gain another three pounds this month. He usually needs a wheelchair to come into the clinic and today he was walking by himself!”
