What Participants are Saying

Without your help there is no way I could afford my meds! I have dealt with your group for probably over 30 years, and you have been outstanding. As for Kilgore's Medical Pharmacy, you call them up, give them a prescription number, and you get your meds in two two days. You can't beat that.

I cannot say anything but ‘thank you’ to both the Missouri Kidney Program and Kilgore's Medical Pharmacy. They are a huge blessing in my life. I know I could not afford the expensive drugs, so this assistance is saving my life! Kilgore's shocks me at how fast they deliver. Great service! Super nice people! God bless you all and thank you for all you do for myself and others.

I am so grateful and blessed to have the Missouri Kidney Program and its partner Kilgore's Medical Pharmacy. Without these two helping me, I wouldn't be able to pay my rent or my medication. Without MoKP, I wouldn't be able to pay my spenddown. I want to thank you, MoKP and Kilgore's Pharmacy, with all my heart. You are a blessing. You rock!

Missouri Kidney Program staff members are very courteous, helpful and prompt with services and have taken every question professionally. I'm very impressed with MoKP’s services. All of them are very appreciated and very needed. Thank you.
