Teresa Strickland sat outside Blairsville’s Healing Hands Clinic giving herself a pep talk.
It went against just about every fiber of her being for Teresa to ask for help.
Yet Teresa also knew that, without aid, she might be physically unable to seek assistance much longer. Already psychologically exhausted from the twists and turns her life had taken over recent months, Teresa also felt her body giving out. And she was on the verge of giving up.
August is Psoriasis Awareness Month. Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease that causes raised, red, scaly patches to appear on the skin. It typically affects the outside of the elbows, knees or scalp, though it can appear on any location. Some people report that psoriasis is itchy, burns and stings. Psoriasis is associated with other serious health conditions, such as diabetes, heart disease, and depression. Learn more at www.psoriasis.org.

Who are we?
"Ambassadors of Christ who are changing lives while saving lives, one loving touch at a time"
Healing Hands was founded in 2007 to supply basic healthcare services to the uninsured of the mountain area (we do not have restrictions as to county or state of residence) as well as to provide an uplifting spiritual message of hope, and exemplify Christ’s love to the sick and infirmed. Healing Hands is a nonprofit non-denominational, faith based ministry staffed by volunteers and funded solely by donations made by individuals, businesses, churches/church organizations and civic organizations; the generosity of the community.
Healing Hands provides free basic healthcare needs such
as those you might see in a non-urgent care facility. The Clinic is able
to see those patients with sub-acute health problems such as:
• Sore throat/Strep
• Gastric Flu
• Urinary tract infection
• Sinus infection
• Ear infection
• Simple skin lesions/rash
Healing Hands is able to assist the patient in the managing
of specific uncomplicated chronic conditions such as:
• Diabetes Mellitus
• High Cholesterol/Triglycerides
The Clinic offers affordable lab monitoring (maintaining a budgeted allotment, when funds are available, to assist those patients who are unable to cover the cost), EKG’s and other diagnostic testing which can be performed in-house. Healing Hands will outsource imaging services to regional centers who accept patients on a self-pay or indigent basis and will also assist clinic patients with limited emergency dental care when funds are available.
