Make an impact this holiday season

by David Wiley, President & CEO of Kansas City Hospice & Palliative Care

As the end of 2018 approaches, we look back on a year filled with stories that have touched our hearts and changed our lives.

I’d like to share with you the remarkable story of Matt Allen, a courageous young man living right here in Kansas City. At just 29 years old, Matt redefined what it means to handle a serious and complex challenge with courage, dignity, and humor. And Matt’s friends are just as extraordinary, demonstrating unconditional love in action.

CLICK HERE to view Matt’s story and see how your support makes such a difference to families like his and so many others throughout our Kansas City community.

Your support ensures expert, compassionate care is available to everyone, regardless of their ability to pay. It means that when a family needs us, we will be there to help them, regardless of their age, their disease, or their ability to pay.

With a single action, a single choice you can make today, you can help individuals and families celebrate each moment together, ease the pain of loss, and begin the healing for a mourning heart.

100% of your donation stays right here locally to help families in the Kansas City area.

Would you please make a gift today?

Special Announcement: A local family would like to help you double your impact. Click the “Donate Now and Double Your Impact” below, and your gift will be matched dollar for dollar up to a total of $40,000 in loving memory of Julian Ray, from Charlie and Dottie Ray.
Thank you for supporting local families with your generous gift.
