Heartlinks is seeking financial support for our "Compassion Care Fund", which allows us the opportunity to serve patients in need, regardless of their financial circumstances. Our goal is to raise $2,000 to finance the increasing cost of our charity hospice care program, which serves patients and families who are struggling with their day-to-day financial existence. Heartlinks hospice care program includes medical support from a doctor and a nurse, social work services, medical equipment (hospital beds, wheelchairs, walkers, etc.), medical supplies, medications to control pain and other symptoms, home health/bath aide, and emotional and spiritual counseling to help the patient and family with grief and loss.
Annually, we serve over 350 patients living out their end-of-life with dignity and comfort care in our hospice program. In our adult and children's palliative care we provide hands-on monitoring and care of those who are still involved in curative treatment, and either not ready for hospice, or able to move towards healing and/or cure. Our dedicated staff serves individuals in that which they consider being home, wherever that may be. Nurses, aides, chaplains, and volunteers unite in an interdisciplinary manner to provide the highest of care and compassion. Our motivation is to be present at any hour of the day or night to address any needs that our patients may have. Our motivation lies in providing support and accepting and respecting all, no matter where they may be.

"Gracias a mi nueva familia por todo su apoyo y amor. Siempre viviran en mi corazon". (Granger, WA)
"You were a light in darkness, and your follow-up over this past year was incredible. Keep up your blessed work!" (Selah, WA)
