(WICHITA, Kan.) — 44-year old Dione Byars has had a hard year. Not only was she laid off, but she was also diagnosed with congestive heart failure and graves disease.
"Not only being unemployed and dealing with those feelings, but being this sick is just ten times worse," Byars said.
With no health insurance she didn't know how she was going to get the treatment she needs. That's when she found out about Wichita's Mayflower Clinic.
"It is such a relief to know I don't have to worry about how I am going to pay the doctor bills anymore," she said.
The Clinic was designed with people like Byars in mind. It started by a dream team of immigrant doctors and surgeons to give back to a community and Country that has treated them well.
"We've had so much from this community so I wanted to give back," said Dr. Zartash Khan.
