Misty's Wish 2014Who are Hospice Heroes?

Hospice Heroes are people of all ages who hold special events, organize activities and participate in fundraisers on our behalf. Hospice Heroes can gather together to produce a one-time event or repeat a fundraiser year after year.

Our Hospice Heroes are biking, bowling, crafting, riding, running, golfing and party planning to help Hospice of the Western Reserve make each day better for the patients and families we serve. Their fundraising support helps us provide exceptional care to all, regardless of ability to pay.

Hospice Heroes are community members who live all over Northern Ohio. They are individuals, families, clubs, civic and school organizations, or any kind or size of group.

How can I be a Hospice Hero?

Nancy Cannon 2014Raise funds. It can be as simple as selling candy bars, as social as a luncheon or as big as a charity concert or golf/bowling outing. However you can imagine raising money, we’re here to help. (See below for great examples.)

Get crafty. Do you enjoy knitting, sewing or other crafting activities? Your skills may be able to help our patients feel more at ease.

Direct a drive. Collect and donate items on our Wish List. Every item donated helps improve the comfort of our patients and families.

Involve your friends. Do you belong to a social club or civic organization? Ask the group about joining Hospice Heroes. You can start the conversation by inviting us to speak at your next meeting.

Contact us today. To find out more on how to become a Hospice Hero, call or email Bridget Murphy at (216) 383-3715  or by email at
