About Charity Open 2020

2020 has brought some interesting and perplexing changes to the world we know. The effects of the COVID-19 pandemic are being felt everywhere. Now, more than ever, the needs of health care and hospice care are great. 

Each year, the Agnesian HealthCare Foundation provides nearly $300,000 to support hospice patient care. In 2020 and beyond, we anticipate that need to be even greater. 

Consider this, in 2019 alone, just under 1,000 hospice patients were served with 30 percent of these patients receiving financial assistance for the length of their care - approximately 65 days on average. Our commitment is that all who seek hospice care have access during this sacred time of life, no matter their ability to pay. 

Will you help us reach our goal of $250,000?

Kay's Story

"Kay and I share a beautiful story; together we have five children, all of whom are now grown and raising children of their own. Kay was diagnosed in 2011 with Dementia with Lewy bodies. 

We didn’t know how we would deal with her disease and the unknown of what lied ahead, but we knew that we could do anything together.

A blessing was how our family came together to care for her - and when the time was right, Hospice was there.

The hospice team was amazing as they offered daily care and comfort measures, ensuring she was as comfortable as possible.

As Kay’s final days drew near, the family gathered together to say their final good-byes.

Not a day goes by that I don’t think of her. She is loved and missed, always, and we are forever blessed to have had her.

Thank you, Agnesian HealthCare Hospice Hope."

- Stephen Victor, Kay's husband
