Gifts made to the Grateful Family and Friends Program help JourneyCare remain committed to our mission of making every moment count for those touched by serious illness and loss, while helping ensure we never have to turn anyone away because of inability to pay.
When making a gift, please share your story with us on the attached card. Those you recognize for outstanding care will receive an acknowledgement letter and your personalized note, if you choose to include one.
