Our Purpose

Saving Lives in Southeast Texas

Texas is the uninsured capital of the United States with more than 5.4 million Texans lacking health insurance. (U.S. Department of Health & Human Services).

Men and women without insurance have been proven to have worse health statuses than their insured counterparts.

Gift of Life provides free medical care for vulnerable individuals, in addition to extensive cancer and wellness educational outreach for all youth and adults.
