For those who have lost a friend or family member, the holidays can be a special time of remembrance. Saint Francis Medical Center offers families an opportunity to help those in need while honoring loved ones.
You can make a contribution to Saint Francis Foundation’s Luminaries for Life campaign to celebrate an important milestone or remember someone who has passed away. For each $100 gift, an ornament in memory or in honor of a loved one will be placed on a Luminary Tree in the Heart Hospital, Healing Arts Lobby or Registration Center.
Contributions benefit the Sister Esther Fund, which assists patients at Saint Francis and their families who are in need of transportation, clothing, overnight lodging, and necessary medicines and equipment needed at home for comfort and recovery. “We have devoted special attention to the Sister Esther Fund because there is so much need in our community,” says Linda H. Decker, executive director for the Foundation.
