22 Warriors Foundation Event

November 7 is when 22 Warriors Foundation will be holding their 2nd annual HCC “Chipping In For Vets” at the Chimera Golf Course from 7:30 am to 2 pm. CompassionCare Hospice will be sponsoring a tee box in in support and honor of OUR Veterans on Veteran’s Day. 22 Veterans lose their battle to stay alive every single day. That number is probably more like 35 Veterans if you include older Veterans. This is not acceptable. Suicide is the military’s leading cause of death. Come out and play some golf and support some great organizations. 22 Warriors Foundation is committed to addressing the issues that lie behind suicides, high risk behaviors, untreated mental illness, and lack of available resources. 22 Warrior Foundation is excited and determined to make a difference in the lives of OUR Veterans and their families.

CompassionCare Hospice Team – Walk To End Alzheimer’s Event News

By participating in the walk, the CompassionCare Hospice team helped to raise donation dollars that went to the research of Alzheimer’s treatment, prevention, and ultimately one day, a cure. It also helped increase the level of Alzheimer’s awareness in our Las Vegas community. Alzheimer’s disease is a type of dementia. It is a disease that destroys memory and other important mental functions. There is no cure for Alzheimer’s disease, but treatment may help. Alzheimer’s disease is the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States and more than 5 million Americans are living with it. In the United States alone someone develops Alzheimer’s every 66 seconds. All the funds raised from the event goes to the Alzheimer’s Association to further the care, support, and research for Alzheimer’s disease.
