14th Annual Valley District Health Fair Saturday, March 28th

Hospice Care invites the community to attend the 14th Annual Valley District Health Fair at the Reedsville Fire Department on Saturday, March 28th from 7:00 am – 11:00 am.  This health fair will provide everyone an opportunity to take advantage of screenings and advice to assess their medical health and prevent illness.

Once again, Bonnie’s Bus a digital mammography center on wheels, will be on site, offering digital mammograms and breast care education to women. This is a service of WVU Healthcare and the Mary Babb Randolph Cancer Center. The mammograms are billed to insurance, Medicaid or Medicare if available. Mammograms for women who do not have insurance will be covered by the West Virginia Breast and Cervical Cancer Screening Program or through special grant funds. A physician’s order is needed for a mammogram. There is still plenty of room for women to receive this great preventive screening.

Also, Hospice Care will be offering a variety of screenings through a blood draw for a low fee.  This year CA 125 ($16) and Vitamin D ($26) have been added along with multipashic panel ($33), thyroid panel with TSH ($25), Hemoglobin A1c ($13), and PSA ($23) testing.   To schedule your appointment and the tests you need please call Hospice Care at (304) 864-0884.

Attending the high school prom is a rite of passage for many young women.  It is “the” social event of their high school in which teens spend a lot of time creating their dream evening. For many it is an expectation that is funded by their parents or family. Unfortunately for some young women, whose families struggle financially on a daily basis, attending the prom is only a dream that will not come true. It costs a small fortune for the dress, shoes, accessories, hair make-up, nails and extras; and, that’s before you step out the front door. So being young with no financial means to afford this once in a lifetime, right-of-passage, leaves an unfortunate lasting imprint on a young women’s self-esteem, confidence and persona.

We at Hospice Care Corporation know that every young woman deserves the opportunity to attend their high school prom looking beautiful on the outside as well as feeling special and empowered on the inside for that one evening.  Over the years, Hospice Care Corporation and its’ supporters has helped thousands of young women go to their prom through The Cinderella Project. It will be making a comeback this year with the gracious support from two local Reedsville, WV business owners; Sherry Newcome, of Sherry’s Boutique and Britney Titus of B&O Junction will sponsor this worthwhile event for area teens. Proceeds from this event will benefit patient care for Hospice Care Corporation.

The Cinderella Project is a community outreach program that provides teen women with an affordable way to attend their high school prom. New and gently-used prom and formal wear, clothing, shoes, accessories that have been donated for this event are available at low, thrift store prices for young women to purchase.

Young women from area high schools can attend to shop for their prom attire at low prices starting at $5.00 for gowns.

Financial support and contributions are also needed.

We want to make sure that there is a dress for every teen that walks through our doors.
