The Foundation has help countless terminally ill patients and their families with basis life needs such as rent or mortgage payment, utility payments, home repairs related to patient and family safety, helping patients accomplish that "one last thing" that they otherwise could not do. As a Board member and a Hospice Program Director I see first hand where every donated dollar goes and, believe me, every dollar makes an incredible difference in the lives of patients and their caregivers. Almost all my staff donated to the Foundation through payroll deduction because, they to see the results of Foundation help first hand. Patricia Heiland
