MEET SCOTTY, A PROJECT ANGEL HEART CLENT
Scotty, who was diagnosed with leukemia, received Project Angel Heart meals while undergoing treatment and recovering from a bone marrow transplant. The meals helped the former pirate treasure hunter, who was part of the crew that discovered the only fully authenticated pirate shipwreck ever recovered, stay strong and positve. “You guys send meals with all the nutrients,” said Scotty. “That’s been a great help, to help keep my body fit. Your body needs more than just pills.”
Research: Medically Tailored Meals
A wealth of data shows that medically tailored meals can improve health outcomes, reduce hospitalizations, and improve quality of life for people living with life-threatening and chronic conditions.
