Jared Williams Medication Fund
GRAND RAPIDS RESIDENTS ONLY
This medication assistance program is set up in memoriam for Jared Williams, an active young man who lived life to the fullest, even as asthma was becoming difficult for him to manage. Although he and his wife had insurance, it was very difficult to pay for the deductibles and co-pays, some of which exceeded $200 for a single prescription. Like so many others, Jared tried stretching usage from month to month. Because he felt well, Jared did not consider the dangers of this practice. Sadly, this problem caught up with him and on November 13, 2014, Mr. Williams suffered a severe asthma attack resulting in his death.
His family and friends wanted to honor a life well lived and hold the "Strikes for Asthma" bowling fundraiser annually, to raise funds to help others affected by asthma in the Grand Rapids area, where Jared lived. AAFA-MI will provide education and training so people learn to better manage their condition, as well as helping them navigate the insurance puzzle.
