At the end of life, one of the last things a patient should have to worry about it is being cared for. Our grantee, Hospice of the Central Coast, spared a terminally-ill patient in Hollister that worry. Here's how your generosity helped:

Thanks to Hospice of the Central Coast, the patient was able to be fully with her family and share traditions, history, and beloved recipes before she passed on.

"There would be talk of dying with dignity, but the focus was on living until the very end," says Tammy Stickler, a social worker with Hospice of the Central Coast, in the video above.

You make it possible for us to provide crucial funds to local end-of-life service providers, like Hospice of the Central Coast, so that patients can focus on the things that matter most to them.
