The First Cheque for Starts With Me

A big milestone for us is handing over the first cheque to a group.

The first cheque signifies a chance to give organizations like Starts With Me the ability to push the limits of their impact. A chance to unleash the creativity and passion of someone like Mike Stroh to benefit the mental health community. The challenges of capacity and funding can compromise the mission of those who have chosen to better the lives of the people around them. Patient Commando’s mission is to eliminate these hurdles for Starts With Me and all of the patient groups that we support.

If you too are someone who uses prescription drugs, you can choose a pharmacy that will support your cause. Starts With Me and all of our groups are on an ambitious trek to change the future of healthcare and improve the lives of patients. You can join by choosing to use your purchasing power to have a positive effect on the diseases and conditions which have chosen to affect you.

Keep up the good work Mike!

SIGN UP and support Starts With Me.

A Picture of Health

In 2007 a team of photographers went across Canada to document the health care delivery experience of marginalized, remote and vulnerable populations.

Their cameras uncovered the stories of “invisible minorities” – people who have barriers to health care either due to where they live or how they live. They are found on the fringes of civilization. They are living among us in the inner city. They suffer from unseen illness or systemic social barriers. These photo essays give us all an exclusive look into an experience that is very Canadian, but foreign to most of us.

The Frontline Health collection is presented in collaboration with the Canadian Public Health Association. See the first 7 photo essays from the selections below. New stories will be released every month over the next year.
