Jill’s Story

Jill’s Story

Jill is a 33 year old mother of three who fell and severely broke her ankle two days prior to her planned move from South Carolina to Hendersonville. Jill had the necessary surgery to stabilize her ankle in South Carolina, but required suture removal and follow-up care by an orthopedist after her move. Jill came to our walk-in medical clinic and was then referred to our orthopedic clinic. Dr. Lilly, our volunteer orthopedist, reviewed Jill’s x-ray and found a healing fracture in good alignment. He removed Jill’s sutures at orthopedic clinic and ordered a follow-up x-ray and a re-evaluation appointment one month later. An orthopedic ‘boot’ had been donated to TFC; it was a perfect fit for Jill and offered the needed support she needed during the healing process. Jill’s fracture is now completely healed, and she is able to both work and care for her children.
