Giving Tuesday is coming December 2!
This year, use Giving Tuesday as a way to support Meridian Health while honoring a ‘star’ in your life. For every gift made online of $5 or more, we will display a star in honor of a special someone in your life.
Funds raised through this effort benefit the Patient Comfort Fund at each of our hospitals. Here is just one example of how these funds are used to provide small comforts for our patients:
“When a loving husband was just beginning to grasp that his 25th anniversary would be the last he shared with his wife, our nursing team did what they could to ensure this devoted spouse had all the makings of a romantic meal, all set up at his wife’s bedside. As much as it could be, that moment was perfect and it was made possible by the Patient Comfort Fund, which covered the expense of our patient’s ‘date’. Thanks to donors like you, we were able to provide so much more than health care to this special couple.” ~ Judy Surko, R, MS, CCR, E-BC, Riverview Medical Center
“It’s the little things. Not having to pay for parking. The staff making sure my wife is comfortable and fed while she waits for me. As a husband and father, these things are what I think about while I am receiving treatment and I am glad that Jersey Shore provides them along with the most advanced cancer care. Being here for my family was my biggest concern when I was given the news that I had an aggressive and extremely rare form of cancer on my heart. Without the technologies and access to the experts at Jersey Shore, and the excellent follow up care that detected my second tumor just recently, I would not be here today. Jersey Shore saved my life... TWICE.” ~ Greg Peterson, Freehold
