Rescuing Health Helps Those In Need

EKG

Ana Gonçalves is from Brazil, and wears many hats here in Knoxville. She's a board member for the Knoxville Montessori School. She's a massage therapist. And she's the founder of Rescuing Health, a non-profit that helps pay for medical treatments and ancillary costs for those who have nowhere else to turn. With so many falling through gaps in coverage, or unable to pay for treatments, Ana says there's a huge need for organizations like hers and volunteers to help manage the program -- and fund it. 

In this interview, she talks about what lead to her found Rescuing Health, and what she'd like to convey to those currently working to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.
