"I really feel that the [You] First is offering me the most important things in my life, the mammogram, the Pap smear, and the heart health, the cholesterol, and those things.  Add the Farm to Family coupons and the state park coupons, the passes, the exercise, and just being able to enjoy the peace and quiet and walking through the park and knowing that you have had a good decent meal.  I don’t know, those things are important."

“A friend introduced me to [You] First. I didn’t have any insurance at the time when I needed my annual screenings and she said this program is a good program. They are very helpful for ladies like me in my age group. [You] First is doing an awesome job.”

“I would say that if you qualify for [You] First, you should definitely take advantage of it. It's very encouraging, challenging.  I've received many cookbooks, brochures and pamphlets that are so encouraging. The other thing, too, is that it's a personal program; I don’t feel like I am part of a major corporation. The staff representative deals with me one-on-one, as if it is a friend encouraging me. I love that [You] First is always coming out with a new program that is proactively helping you to keep healthy instead of the other way around, being unhealthy and then paying for the services.”

"I got involved with [You] First almost two years now, when I was going through treatment for breast cancer. A friend of mine told me about them to help with my bills for radiation and surgery. They’re great people to talk to.  I mean they understand. I mean a lot of them have been through it themselves."

"In April of this year I had gone for my mammogram and I was diagnosed with having breast cancer. I had gotten the results from the biopsy they did the same day my husband was unemployed and we lost our insurance. [You] First was just wonderful to deal with. They are very helpful. They always call back. They are considerate.  I couldn’t ask for nicer women that I talked to there. They worked really hard to get and help me through such a difficult time period. I let people know that that's how great the organization is."

“I think the best experience I had was when [You] First came into my life during the loss of my husband. The insurance I had was cut off. I called [You] First and sure enough I was told I can still get some benefits through them. So [You] First was looking out for me. When I was worried about my gaining some weight they got into a good program to monitor my weight to get back on the right track. I received Farm to Family coupons as a reward for fitness exercises, which in the first year I kind of felt funny about using them! Then I started looking at it differently, as a gift. I was proud that I have received coupon gifts from [You] First to spend at Farmers’ Markets."
