Hospice care is, basically, a specialized type of care for terminally ill patients. Hendrick Hospice Care is one of the most compassionate hospice services in the country. They, literally, attend to every need of the patient and their families. Having an organization around here, like Hendrick Hospice, should be peace of mind for all that might have to face life-limiting situations.

Well, each year, Hendrick Hospice Care holds a fundraiser, called Light Up a Life, to raise money to benefit patients and their families.

If you've ever experienced losing a loved one then you understand how difficult that time is emotionally, let alone financially. This campaign allows Hendrick Hospice Care to provide services to everyone, despite ability to pay.

Help us help Hendrick Hospice Care and their patients. Would you please make a donation today?

Become a Hospice Star by pledging just $15 a month, for 12 months, or any amount over $180. For each $15 donation, a bulb will be placed on the Mall of Abilene or Sweetwater Christmas tree in memory, in honor, or in celebration of a loved one. All Hospice Stars receive a T-shirt.
