Foot and skin infections are one of the most frequent health problems homeless people face. Sundin gets his nails cut at the HHC on a Monday night by a volunteer. Sundin also has cataracts and a reading comprehension disorder that makes it difficult to find or keep a job, especially at his age.
Arthur Luke, 55, got a cut on his right foot that got infected. He had to go to Shands, where he says they made a mistake and had to amputate part of his foot.
