Your Gifts at Work

Sarah Sullivan, 35, has seen over 200 different doctors in her lifetime and had her first open heart surgery at 2 months old.
A rare blood disease has left Sarah with few options, but she has chosen to live the rest of her life enjoying every moment in the coziness of her home, receiving care and support from the EveryStep Hospice team.

Sarah has become dependent on a trilogy ventilator machine, allowing her to breathe comfortably and maintain her oxygen levels. Medicaid does not cover this type of care. Fortunately, the EveryStep Foundation has been able to fund the expenses. Not only has our organization played a critical role in Sarah’s level of comfort, health and quality of life, but the EveryStep team has helped her find joy. Last year, our Foundation paid to have Sarah’s sister and her family flown in for the holidays. It was the first time in 20 years the family had been together on Christmas.

February 6, 2019 A Story from Our Hospice Houses: George Adams

George Adams, 84, hadn't seen his 94-year-old sister Wilene in nearly two years. Despite this, the siblings have maintained a close relationship, chatting on the phone from their respective homes in Iowa and Nebraska. Still, there's nothing quite like seeing your sister in person. And that's just what George, a veteran and patient at EveryStep's Greater Regional Hospice Home in Creston, was able to do recently.

January 15, 2019 A Story from Our Hospice Houses: Jim Donlan

"This is another beautiful day God has given me." Those are the words spoken to Jim Donlan by a terminally ill elderly woman his very first day as a volunteer with EveryStep Hospice. More than twenty years later, Jim still recounts to every new volunteer he meets the story of that day, eager to convey to others the inspiring and meaningful memories he made as even a rookie hospice volunteer.

January 8, 2019 A Story from Our Volunteers: Christy Galt

When Christy Galt retired at the age of 60 she knew she wanted to continue to contribute in her community in some way. That's where the EveryStep Giving Tree thrift store came into play. Galt has always had a special place in her heart for hospice care. While she hasn't personally been touched by the end-of-life care, she has admired the mission of such organizations.
