Renew Gives Back
Renew MediSpa donates monthly to The Michael Stephen Boyd Memorial Foundation,
THIS CHARITY AS IT’S RECIPIENT THROUGH SMILE.AMAZON.COM.
The Michael Stephen Boyd Memorial Foundation was founded in memory of Sgt. Michael Stephen Boyd. He was a decorated Marine who served with honor, including a tour in Afghanistan. Michael, like so many of our other Veterans, suffered from severe PTSD as well as pain due to injuries sustained during his time in service. He battled injury induced opioid addiction, which led to a heroin addiction when he was no longer able to obtain prescription opioids. Michael struggled often with homelessness, joblessness and a vicious cycle of sobriety and relapse. Michael tried. He tried hard, and he tried often to get and stay clean. He wanted sobriety; he wanted to be a man he could be proud of. Frustration and cravings, shame and self-hatred, the desperate desire to be the man he couldn’t see he already was, led to a brutal cycle he couldn’t break. Michael lost his battle with heroin on October 02, 2018 to an IV drug overdose.

RENEW MEDISPA DONATES MONTHLY TO CHARITY:WATER
785 million people live without clean water. That’s nearly 1 in 10 people worldwide, or, twice the population of the United States without access to life’s most basic human need. The majority live in isolated rural areas and spend hours every day walking to collect water for their family. When a community gets access to clean water, it can change just about everything. Charity: Water works with local experts and community members in developing countries to find the best sustainable solution in each place they reach.

2018 Charitable Donations
Helping Edrice Preserve His Home- July 2018
In September 2017, Hurricane Irma, and Hurricane Maria 2 weeks later, became the costliest Caribbean hurricanes on record. In addition to lives lost, many lost their homes and everything else they owned. Such was the case for Edrice, a resident of Turks and Caicos who resides on the island of Providenciales where he works 6 days a week as a groundskeeper for a resort Villa.
That September, Renew MediSpa contributed $3000 towards a fund that was established to build Edrice a new home and replace lost clothing and other items. This year Edrice was told by the government that he needed to put a new exterior on his structure in order to be compliant with the building codes. The cost of this project was $2000, which was beyond his means. In July, Dr. Vuich and her husband wired the $2000 to Edrice, enabling the project to be completed within a week.

A message from Edrice:
“Thanks Lisa, you help me so much. I can’t imagine how much you care for me. It’s a miracle for my life. I want God to bless you in everything you do.”
