Sanford Health massage therapist, Bernie Schmidt's husband suffered a brain aneurism in summer 2008 and had to travel to Minnesota for treatment. With over a month of traveling and medical expenses on top of not working, Schmidt said money was a concern for her family until she received financial support from the EEF. "I can't even explain how thankful I am that Sanford Health has this fund," said Schmidt. "Due to my husband's condition, he couldn't work for two and half months. The bills kept coming, and this fund saved us. This is another reason why I love working at Sanford Health."
