Member Stories: Lorraine Ranalli

Lorraine Shares Her Member Experience

Lorraine and her husband joined Solidarity thinking they would never have to use it, and they would just contribute to other Members’ medical care. Instead, they got thrown into a scary medical situation very soon after they joined, and the rest of the Members shared all of their medical expenses. That’s why she chose to share her Member experience.

“I don’t know where we would be if we didn’t have it. I don’t know that he would have gotten the ablation surgery, and don’t know what this would have looked like.”

Check out Lorraine’s thoughts on the program and how much the sharing community has impacted their lives!

Lorraine Ranalli shares her Member story

“We have to be responsible for our healthcare, for ourselves, and, again, not overtly, but just because of what Solidarity is and how it’s comprised, we’re encouraged to do that. And it’s a win-win for everybody, and it’ll be a win-win, I think, for our nation’s healthcare.”

Join the Movement

Solidarity HealthShare is a non-profit healthcare sharing ministry rooted in the teachings of the Catholic Church. Established in 2016, we operate on the Catholic principles of solidarity and subsidiarity, in accordance with the Church’s commitment to promoting life-affirming, ethical healthcare.

We strive to provide an ethical, community-driven alternative to traditional health insurance. Through direct Member-to-Member sharing, Members are able to access quality healthcare services while preserving their family’s financial, physical, and spiritual health, all at once. Members never need to worry about their healthcare dollars funding immoral medical procedures. We promote a holistic approach to healthcare, emphasizing the importance of physical, mental, and spiritual well-being.

At the heart of our ministry’s mission to restore and rebuild an authentically Catholic healthcare culture in America is the recognition that every single person has inherent human dignity. We seek to promote healthcare that honors the sanctity of human life from conception to natural death.
