Rachel’s Heart | Holiday Stockings for Pediatric Patients
Rachel Hatfield was diagnosed with glioblastoma brain cancer at age 9 years. Always a giver, Rachel asked friends attending her birthday party to bring toys to share with other children suffering with cancer. Hospice Women of Philanthropy honors Rachel by sponsoring the Rachel’s Heart Holiday Stockings for Pediatric Patients project. For a total investment of $5,830, this project provides young hospice and palliative care patients, along with their siblings, with special gifts during the holidays.
LifePath Hospice Supports Hard Choices for Loving People
The Hospice Women of Philanthropy lends it support to Chapters Health Palliative Care in order to serve patients and families in need of symptom and pain management for their serious illnesses. The “Hard Choices for Loving People” booklet offers an opportunity to assist the healthcare provider in educating the community with a tool that can be used at home.
Circle of Love Center – South Shore Location
For many years, LifePath Hospice has helped children at the Circle of Love Center in south Tampa navigate feelings of grief. No matter what the loss, the center provides a caring atmosphere for children and families to express their feelings in a safe supporting environment. The Hospice Women of Philanthropy pledged support to assist the South Shore location of the Circle of Love Center in Ruskin with needed supplies in order to offer the same services as the original location.
LifePath Hospice’s We Honor Veterans Project
With a gift of $11,000, Hospice Women of Philanthropy supplemented LifePath Hospice’s We Honor Veterans project by purchasing more than 500 The One Who Served books. This book provides an opportunity for each veteran to tell his or her story and thus leave behind a precious legacy for family.
