Families Find Comfort and Support from Caring Circle Programs

darci-borlinLast year, with your generous support of Caring Circle programs including Hospice at Home, the Merlin and Carolyn Hanson Hospice Center, and Lory’s Place, more than $216,000 was raised during the Annual Appeal. Your charitable contributions allowed Caring Circle to provide:

  • 329 days of hospice care to those without benefits
  • 91 days of care at the Merlin and Carolyn Hanson Hospice Center to people who need financial support
  • Support to 2,674 individuals at Lory’s Place

Please take a moment to share the amazing stories, experiences, and journeys of two local families, served by two of our Caring Circle programs, as they grieve the deaths of their sons. Jeremy Borlin was 10 years old when he died of cancer last December at the Merlin and Carolyn Hanson Hospice Center. Michael Mattson, 36, completed suicide a year ago; Lory’s Place has guided his family’s grief journey.

“Losing a loved one to suicide is a grief like no other. Sadness, anger, and suffocating guilt jumble together in your heart from the very first moments.” - Mike and Debbie Mattson
