Q & A

Why did you choose this charity to support? Someone very close to me was recently cared for by Big Bend Hospice, and I personally experienced the incredible care and support they provided to her and my loved ones during this difficult time. Until then, I had no idea they offered so many programs that would make such a difference to all of us. Community support makes it possible for Big Bend Hospice to provide some incredibly important programs free of charge, like music therapy, and community and children’s bereavement support. They never turn anyone away. I can’t imagine our community without their services!
