The Compassionate Friends

From the Compassionate Friends Website:

"The mission of The Compassionate Friends is to assist families toward the positive resolution of grief following the death of a child of any age and to provide information to help others be supportive.

The Compassionate Friends is a national nonprofit, self-help support organization that offers friendship, understanding, and hope to bereaved parents, grandparents and siblings. There is no religious affiliation and there are no membership dues or fees.

The secret of TCF's success is simple: As seasoned grievers reach out to the newly bereaved, energy that has been directed inward begins to flow outward and both are helped to heal. The vision of The Compassionate Friends is that everyone who needs us will find us and everyone who finds us will be helped."

Ronald McDonald House Charities

From the Ronald McDonald House Charities Website:

"The three core programs of RMHC - the Ronald McDonald House, Ronald McDonald Family Room and Ronald McDonald Care Mobile - are focused on helping families in need. The Ronald McDonald House program began in 1974 based on a simple idea: Provide a "home away from home" for families of seriously ill children receiving treatment at nearby hospitals. Since that time, more than 10 million families around the world have benefited from the comfort provided by a Ronald McDonald House."


From the LifePoint Webpage:

"Certified by the federal government, LifePoint is the designated Organ Procurement Organization (OPO) for organ recovery services in South Carolina, excepting Aiken and Edgefield counties. LifePoint actively provides organ, tissue and ocular donor services to 62 hospitals throughout the state.

We offer professional education about donation to the hospital staff members in order to maximize the amount and quality of donated organs and tissues.

LifePoint also helps support and educate families at an emotionally devastating time, so they can make well-informed decisions about organ and tissue donation. Whether they decide for or against donation, our aim is to assure that they will feel they have made the right decision in the months and years to come."

Hospice Care of South Carolina

From the Hospice Care of South Carolina Webpage:UR MISSION

"Care For You or Your Loved One When It's Needed Most...

Hospice Care of South Carolina seeks to alleviate the fears most commonly associated with the diagnosis of a terminal illness - the fear of helplessness, of becoming a burden to the family, or the fear of overwhelming medical costs.

You do not have to walk this journey alone, as a patient or as a family. With the assistance of compassionate end-of-life professionals, we can make this journey together.

We Care Too!  We Are Here For You, Whenever You Need Us..."
