I would like to introduce Diane Havaich-Onken, she is a great mother, wife, grandmother, and one of our most revered Hospice nurses. Diane has been a Nurse since 1975, and a Hospice Nurse since 1981. Diane has recently suffered a traumatic injury resulting in a broken Tibia, Fibula, and ankle requiring multiple pins, rods, and screws to repair and stabilize the damage that she has incurred. This injury will require her to take an extended leave from the job that she has devoted so much of her life to for healing and rehabilitation, which will also result in increasing financial stress.
Diane is not just a Nurse, she is also the caregiver of her 96-year-old mother who suffers from late stages of Dementia, that lives with her, as well as the caregiver for her husband who is also recovering from 3 major surgeries of his own within the past year. Diane is the most selfless person I know. Diane has never turned anyone away who was in need of help. She has helped countless individuals and families in need of housing, clothing, food, assisting them in finding employment, and even assisting with addiction recovery. Diane has assisted hundreds (if not thousands) of patients at the end of their lives die with dignity, respect, and comfort under her care, and now she is in need our assistance.
Diane is a prayerful woman, and she would appreciate any and all prayers, words, thoughts, and good wishes for continued strength and healing. Any amount of financial assistance that can be provided is greatly appreciated as she struggles during her healing and rehabilitation. I would like to thank you in advance for your generosity during this most difficult time for this selfless friend of ours.
