FERNLEY, Nev., June 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Catherine is a resident of Fernley, Nevada and a representative of Watertree Health, a leading distributor of free prescription discount cards. Because of her efforts, a new program has been initiated by the company to support

C*A*R*E* Chest of Sierra Nevada , a recognized, local 501(c)(3) non-profit, in the Northern Nevada region. They provide free medical equipment and supplies to help people in need remain healthy and independent.

Only a few years back Catherine was stricken by a near fatal illness. While recovering, she found herself facing complete bankruptcy as a result of mounting hospital bills, and the high cost of prescription medicines because she was uninsured. It was then that she was introduced to the Watertree Health Prescription Discount Card that enabled her to get the medicines she desperately needed for her recovery.

"I am doing better these days," she says, counting her blessings. "Well enough to want to make a difference in the lives of others in my state, who are facing similar circumstances." Recent reports place the number of uninsured in Nevada at 23% of the state's population, higher than the national average.

To help those in need, Catherine works with Watertree Health to get the cards in as many hands as possible, whether they are uninsured or underinsured and without prescription coverage. To that end she has enlisted the support of local organizations and the medical community in Reno, Fallon, Carson City, Gardnerville, Minden, Tahoe and surrounding areas.

One of the organizations she teamed with early on was C*A*R*E* Chest. Their commitment to building healthier communities mirrors Watertree Health's mission. Patti Meals, Executive Director of the non-profit, has known Catherine for almost 15 years and says, "Her desire to help the clients we serve became a reality when she introduced us to Watertree Health."

That introduction has led to the launch of a program where each time a branded C*A*R*E* Chest card is used to save on a prescription, $.50 is donated to the organization. The card offers between 25%-75% savings on FDA approved brand and generic prescriptions. It's a win-win for everyone.
