For You Farmworker, I Walk!
Walk-a-thon in favor of our farmworkers who have not received Federal or State aid during the pandemic. An event to place food in the tables of those who endlessly work to provide food for all of us during COVID-19.
I needed surgery and had sought help, but they treated me and did nothing. I found out how much the procedure would cost me, and it was too expensive for me, I was never going to be able to afford it.
A friend told me about CSF Surgery, I decided to go and find out, the price of my surgery with them which seemed reasonable to me, it was something that I could gather with effort.
At CSF they also gave me the option to apply to CSF Medical Non-Profit Foundation to help me pay for part of my surgery. My son Jorge helped me fill out the application, it was not a complicated process for me. I am a single person, and the truth we needed this help a lot. When I received the letter with the answer that they were going to help me with part of the money for my surgery, I felt very relieved. This foundation is very good help to people like me who do not have health insurance and low economic resources. They treated me very well and instantly sent me to the specialist. Dr. Srinivas checked me and advised me about surgery.
My surgery was at Bakersfield Memorial Hospital where the nurses and secretaries treated me very well, helped me fill out papers and explained the steps to follow before surgery perfectly well. On the day of the surgery, Dr. Srinivas came to explain my surgery. I am very grateful to her.
Today I feel perfect, as if I have rejuvenated. The illness I had prevented me from doing things, I couldn’t even walk and today I already feel very well.
I am very grateful to the organization and the foundation that helped me with the cost of my surgery.
I encourage anyone who needs help to call. I do not get tired nor will I, of giving thanks.
Thank you all for your support!

I’m from Bakersfield, and I heard about you from a friend. She told me that the foundation was helping people who had been affected by the pandemic, I also saw you on Facebook and on the news. So, I went to CSF and they gave me the application for help. Filled out my application and took it. Then they called me because I qualified for financial assistance.
My husband lost his job, he has anxiety and depression, and I worked in the fields and also stopped working.
I am very grateful with CSF Medical Non-Profit Foundation for having helped me, I want people to know that this help was true, they told me that it was not going to be, but it was real, and I am very grateful to everyone, thank you very much, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
I heard about CSF Surgery in my community clinic, when they told me I had a tumor and had to operate. I did not know what to do because I did not have the resources to pay.
Thank God, the social workers at the clinic told me that there was this organization (CSF Surgery), I got in touch with them, and it has been a success. I will have my surgery and besides, they are helping me financially.
CSF Surgery has a foundation, CSF Medical Non-Profit Foundation, and I applied for help during this COVID-19 crisis.
I thank the founder of the foundation and all the staff of CSF Surgery and CSF Foundation; they are a great support for me in these times of great need.
When the pandemic began to worsen, they told us that a farmworker foundation was going to offer an economic stimulus for the affected people who work in the fields and I was very happy. It turns out that from that day the foundation put the information so we would call to give us the economic stimulus, they did not answer us, until I lost hope.
Now I am very happy because I am receiving help from CSF Foundation and this is going to help me a lot.
The process of time since I found out and applied for the economic relief program of CSF Foundation S.O.S. COVID-19 until I received the aid was about a week, it is something incredible and very beautiful from all of you.
I have no words to thank you, I can only pray to God for you, to give you a lot of strength to continue doing this. Thanks CSF.
