Last 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
