Being terminally ill evokes many difficult emotions and worries for patients and their loved ones. Financial hardship, loss of independence and concern about having to leave the comfort of home are major stressors. I have witnessed how the CCH Foundation has relieved these worries and allowed patients to remain at home by providing financial assistance for emergency response systems and household expenses so that loved ones could take time off work to provide care and not worry about falling behind on basic costs of living. The Foundation has also granted some special requests, specifically focused on enhancing quality of life when life is coming to an end. Hospice care focuses on comfort, and the Foundation takes it a step further by providing financial assistance to help patients enjoy the comfort of home when facing the end of life.
