Sick? Need medicine? Have no one to Help?

A Cape Coral woman has offered to pick up medicine for people battling the flu that can’t get out of their homes to do so on their own.

A local woman is helping Cape Coral battle the flu in the most thoughtful way.

“It’s the flu season right now, and a lot of people in Cape Coral don’t have family members here,” said Renae Graves.

With that in mind, Graves has offered to pick up medicine for sick people in Cape Coral that don’t have family or friends nearby to help them.

She feels people are most vulnerable, physically and emotionally, when they’re sick.

“You feel even worse when you don’t have any medicine – no one’s helping you – no one’s offering to help,” she said.

In a flu season where we’ve reportedly seen twice as many cases locally as we did this time last year —as well as a recent restriction on visitation of kids age twelve and younger from all units in hospitals across Lee Health — the extra care from people like Graves is much needed.

“I just want to be that person who offers to help – make them feel a little better. They could at least know I care for them,” said Graves.

You can send Hello SWFL an email if you’re interested in contacting Graves.
