From Our Foundress and Chair
“With the right people in the community, with a good heart and understanding the
value of love and dignity, you can do this….it goes far, far more than any health
plan you can purchase”.

         -Vice Admiral Dr. Richard H. Carmona Surgeon General of the United States (January 9, 2006)

My dear friends of Mission of Mercy,
This statement says it all. In today’s world, many people want results quickly.
Our Lord asked me on December 14, 1991, “to begin small to sow the seed
of love firmly planted by loving and restoring dignity to those in your
community. Then your love will expand to great lengths and metastasize
across the world.” In today’s world, it seems that people are impressed with
grandiose and star-power accomplishments and tangible results, before they
will even give, and then often times only with recognition. However, it is
through the grace of perseverance and the gift of “littleness” that Mission of
Mercy is completing its 13th year of service. That service is by people who
are “little” and ordinary, and for people who are “little” and ordinary, in an
exchange of love and mercy that benefits both, and gives God great glory.
As Mother Teresa of Calcutta said, “For there are many people who can do
big things, but there are very few people who will do the small things.”
The year 2006 was a year full of challenges; but through the loyalty,
commitment and perseverance of all of our volunteers, staff, benefactors,
board of directors, leadership councils and MOM’s Family Auxiliary, we
continued into our 13th year making significant progress and impacting the
lives of many needy people. There are so many people, foundations, and
corporations who have been the backbone of our survival. All of our
benefactors, staff and volunteers have been constant, confident and peaceful
in God’s Love to be the Light of the Love to all peoples.
As we entered 2006, Mission of Mercy was deeply honored by a visit from the U.S. Surgeon General, Vice Admiral
Richard H. Carmona, M.D., to the Mobile Medical and Dental Clinic. Dr Carmona shared what made Mission of
Mercy stand out, “What inspired me most is when I saw that the only clearance to come here is a need. What’s
dispensed here is love and dignity for a fellow human being.” MOM’s Family volunteers continued their legacy of
financial and spiritual support for Mission of Mercy giving with cheerful hearts and hands, time and energy to ensure
the success of the mobile medical program. Special activities were created, coordinated, and managed like the 5K
Run & Family Fun Walk, Annual Gala Dinner Dance & Silent Auction, Annual Golf Tournament, Westminster Fallfest,
Health Fairs, Church Mission Fairs, Charity Days, Speaker’s Bureau and Christmas Toys for Kids. In March the Arizona
site took possession of a new medical mobile clinic with the gracious financial assistance of two prominent
Foundations. The 2nd Rock ‘n Roll Ball, Lobster Bake and Community Shopping Day were some of Arizona’s
successful, special events.
Mission of Mercy continues to increase the number of patients served. Nationally, the uninsured with chronic
conditions, reported almost twice the number of emergency room visits than did the insured. Mission of Mercy
continues to strive to provide the uninsured with continuous care that decreases the burden on the public healthcare
system and prevents these serious, but treatable conditions from becoming life-threatening illnesses.
My dear friends, all of us, along with those we serve, need to always try to embrace our “littleness” and ordinariness
with a childlike spirit that makes us powerful in the eyes of God and provides us with the grace to persevere into an
uncertain future, trusting in God’s unfathomable Love and Mercy. There is no favoritism in God’s Love. We are all
family! Through your prayers, your financial generosity and your selfless giving of time, you can be certain that you
have given many others the opportunity to live a life filled with a little more Love, respect and dignity. I honor you
and thank you for allowing me to serve you.
As always, you remain in my prayers,

                                                    Gianna Sullivan, Pharm D.

Footnote to 2006 & 2005 Operating Results
A review of the 2006 and 2005 audit summary shows that Mission of Mercy has experienced two consecutive years of operating
loss (Net Support). While the operating results for 2006 ($46,343) was substantially lower than 2005, it deserves discussion.
Specifically, the 2005 operating loss was expected because of a commitment to expand patient care and meet the increasing
needs of the chronically ill patients being treated at the mobile clinics. To meet the the increasing demand for services and the
increasing severity of patient care, and the medications dispensed, the Board of Directors authorized an increase in the medical
program. The result was a growth in our patient visits by over 10% from 2004 to 2006. In 2006 medical program expenses
leveled off, and declined slightly. To allow for this program growth, the Board authorized the short term use of strategic reserve
funds. The expectation was that funding would increase to offset the higher medical program costs. From 2004 to 2006 there
has been a 12% increase in contributions, grants and special event revenue. In order to accomplish this revenue increase, it was
necessary to grow the administrative and fundraising staff during 2006.
The 2007 budget, as adopted by the Board of Directors, continues Mission of Mercy’s commitment to patient care and the
continuing need for medical, fundraising and related program expenses. The 2007 budget expects a modest operating gain,
which will be used to increase the strategic reserves and will be reflected in a modest increase in Net Assets.

   they have to make.
