The vignettes that air during the telethon tell the stories of our hospice patients and families and show the public firsthand what hospice is all about – quality, compassionate end-of-life care. Area businesses show their support of our mission by presenting checks and expressing their appreciation for the services we provide to the community. Many special events are conducted throughout the year and are recognized during the Telethon.
