Thousands of people in Gregg County need expensive prescription medicines, but many just can't afford it. And that's where George and Jo Parker of Longview come in. The Parkers came up with helping hands pharmaceutical assistance.
They subsidize the program with their own income and help many get medicines they couldn't ordinarily afford. Through helping hands, patients pay a nominal fee of 5 to 10 dollars, for a 90 day prescription which normally costs 3 to 400.
