Supporting Caregivers of Alzheimer’s and Dementia Patients

 

Florida Compassion Foundation (FCF) is a 501(c)(3) Florida corporation founded by Tracy and Kimberly (Kim) Hussey following the death of Kimberly’s Mom. Kim’s Mom passed away from early onset Alzheimer’s disease at the young age of 68.

Kim and Tracy have not only witnessed first hand how this atrocious disease affected the person with the disease, but the patients spouse, family and loved ones.

In many ways it is more devastating to the loved ones than to the patient themselves.

Florida Compassion Foundation raises funds to help the families of Alzheimer’s patients – to assist with items that insurance will not cover. Anything from private nursing care to travel expenses, to funds that can help them get away for 24 hours – Florida Compassion Foundation is here to serve you.

Philippians 1:8  is the motto for FCF.

God knows how much I love you and long for you with the tender compassion of Jesus Christ.” – Phil 1:8 (NLT)

There are many ways you can support FCF.  Anything from attending one of our events.   Volunteering at one of our events. Sponsoring one of our events or by making donation to Florida Compassion Foundation.   To make a donation click here. http://www.floridacompassionfoundation.com.
