Financial Loan Success Story
Amy, a new mother from Sayre, used ABLE Tech’s Financial Loan Program to purchase an Apple Watch. The watch detects Amy’s abnormal heart rhythms and alerts Amy so she can get somewhere safe and sit down. The watch also calls 911 and informs the ambulance of Amy’s location when she faints.
Amy says, “with this watch along with the crib and other items ABLE Tech has helped me get - I can care for my baby with confidence and live more of a normal life….Thank you for everything you have done for me.”
