Heart of Gold

 

Kansas City HospiceThis year, Terri Olsen wishes to celebrate her son, the boy with a “Heart of Gold.” November marks what would have been Brent’s 40th birthday, and in 2020 Kansas City Hospice will be celebrating our 40th year of providing care to the Kansas City community.

Thanks to her generosity, every dollar you give to the Kansas City Hospice 2019 “Heart of Gold” giving campaign will be matched dollar for dollar up to $40,000.

She understands that Kansas City Hospice cares for members of our community regardless of their age, disease, disability or illness, and it’s because of her, and you, and donors throughout our community, that no one is turned away because they do not have resources to pay.
 
Your donation to the Heart of Gold campaign will be matched by a generous local familyWe hope you will consider a generous gift to the Kansas City Hospice “Heart of Gold” giving campaign as we celebrate the life of Brent and the love of a mother, and as we joyfully remember those we hold forever in our hearts.  

Yes, I’d like to help families and double my impact!
