Your generosity helped us exceed our Colorado Gives Day Goal!

Thank you from our staff, our board, and most importantly, our neighbors who we serve every day.

Life can become overwhelming when dealing with a new diagnosis or chronic disease. Our neighbors struggle paying bills, scheduling appointments, and creating changes in their lives. We remind clients of the skills they have, help build new skills, link them to resources, and support their journey to thrive and be healthy.

When you donate to Grand County Rural Health Network, you help us provide programs and services that identify and overcome barriers to healthcare for our community.

Thank you!

We are proud to be a part of Grand County Gives, a collaboration of local nonprofits participating in Colorado Gives Day

Helping rural Coloradans move past health barriers

There is nowhere Mark Davis would rather live than the mountains of Colorado.

Now over 60 years old, Davis is a carpenter who specialized in remodeling houses in the Front Range and, later, in Grand County. For nearly 10 years, he lived near Grand Lake in an apartment with his dog, Patches.  But in his 50s, he began noticing that he had less control over his muscles and his speech. Davis was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, a disorder of the nervous system. “The tremors were getting worse,” he said. “Your whole body gets tired.”

Over time, his deteriorating muscle control made it nearly impossible to ride his bicycle or drive around, let alone do his work. “I can’t drive at all now,” he said.

Having lost his primary source of income, Davis didn’t have insurance to support his medical care, and without it, just one of the medications he needed to manage his Parkinson’s cost hundreds of dollars a month. For a person living alone and without insurance, the situation wasn’t easy.
