Sixth Circuit SOLACE Success Report!

SOLACE is making a difference in the lives of our members and those close to them! Thank you for your support of our most recent SOLACE request in the Sixth Circuit.

A request was sent on behalf of an FBA member’s federal judicial assistant, whose son is a student at the University of Cincinnati. He is a great young man, who has undergone surgery for a terrible infection and other health problems. Doctors recommended that he see a rheumatologist, but the earliest appointment was not until September. The SOLACE request asked for anyone with connections to University of Cincinnati Health to reach out to help this student receive an earlier appointment.

The contact person for the family indicated that the response from FBA members was overwhelming. Two phone calls and eight emails were received from people offering to help within 24 hours. We want to thank all of you for the responses and assure you that the information has been passed along to the SOLACE request recipient. The family's doctor is also now pushing to get the appointment moved up, so it appears that the issue will be resolved one way or the other. Many thanks for your help! All of the efforts were greatly appreciated. It's great to know that SOLACE works!
