Patient Fundraiser A Success!

Posted under Announcements.


On Saturday July 12th MRFM employees held a very successful fundraiser to assist one of our patients that is in need of a heart transplant. Marty Shaffer, a patient of Dr. Robert Funke, is on the heart transplant list at the University of Virginia Medical Center, Charlottesville. Marty has not been able work due to his illness and has limited financial means. Upon learning this the MRFM Staff rallied around Marty and decided to have a yard sale fund raiser, with all proceeds from the sale going to Marty, to help offset his medical expenses. The yard sale was a major success raising over $1,900 for Marty. In addition to the MRFM staff that contributed their time and items for the yard sale MRFM wishes to thank the follow businesses that contributed items for the sale:

  • East Tennessee Brain & Spine
  • The Press Group
  • Resp-I-Care
  • Results Physiotherapy
  • Smoky Mountain Home Health & Hospice
  • Surgical Associates of Kingsport
