AED - Automated External Defibrillator

We need a defibrillator!

Please consider donating so that we can purchase a new automated external defibrillator (AED). The AED would diagnose the life-threatening cardiac arrhythmias of ventricular fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia in a patient, and is able to treat them through defibrillation, the application of electrical therapy which stops the arrhythmia, allowing the heart to reestablish an effective rhythm. All donations are appreciated. You can donate online through PayPal

or mail in donations to Healing Hands Community Clinic, PO Box 2143, Blairsville, GA 30514.. Just $5 gets us closer to having this essential tool. Thanks!

March is Colon Cancer Awareness Month

March is National Colon Cancer Awareness Month

In February 2000, President Clinton officially dedicated March as National Colon Cancer Awareness Month. Since then, it has grown to be a rallying point for the colon cancer community where thousands of patients, survivors, caregivers and advocates throughout the country join together to spread colon cancer awareness by wearing blue, holding fundraising and education events, talking to friends and family about screening and so much more.

What You Can Do

•If you're aged 50 to 75, get screened for colorectal cancer regularly. Screening tests help prevent colorectal cancer by finding precancerous polyps (abnormal growths) so they can be removed. Screening also finds this cancer early, when treatment can be most effective.
•Be physically active.
•Maintain a healthy weight.
•Don't drink too much alcohol.
•Don't smoke.

About Healing Hands Community Clinic

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:

Healing Hands is able to assist the patient in the managing of specific uncomplicated chronic conditions such as:

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.
