Our greatest need is for support of hospice care.
The annual BIG-TO-DO benefits the Pediatric Program of Visiting Nurse Health System. This program meets the comprehensive medical, physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of pediatric patients and their families through home healthcare, hospice and the Camp STARS grief counseling camps.
Many patients in our Pediatric Program are coping with the overwhelming diagnosis of a terminal illness and require care that is significantly more expensive than adult end-of-life services. In most instances, reimbursement from Medicaid or private insurance covers only half of the costs of their care. Your support enables us to serve all who need our services, regardless of their ability to pay.
