CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Action 9 wanted to do something about the problem of medical debt in our area and found a non-profit called RIP Medical Debt, which buys medical debt for pennies on the dollar and pays it off for people.

You can donate to help wipe out debt for even more people. The money you give will go to the non-profit organization RIP Medical Debt and will help people in our area who are struggling with debt.
