David and Vix
David and Vix’s story illustrates the positive effect the RMBF can have. Whilst training to become a GP, David became ill with pneumonia and later meningitis. David’s wife, Vix, a medical student, suffers from long-term depression. As a result of both their illnesses, David and Vix have encountered significant financial worries.
The RMBF helped to cover the cost of nursery and childcare for David and Vix’s two young children. With the help of the RMBF, David has been able to continue his GP training and Vix returned to medical school where she has now graduated.
