Hannibal Regional Hospital Foundation and the Hannibal Rite Care would like to invite you to join them on April 17th for a Wine Tasting at Cave Hollow Winery. Cheers for the Kids 2015 will benefit Hannibal Regional Hospital’s Pediatric Speech Therapy Department. Your generosity will help fund a scholarship program to give children opportunity to receive Speech Therapy services that may not be covered by insurance.
Alex and Marty Gonzalez are an example of a family who have continually benefited from the scholarship program for patients who need services not covered by insurance. One of their daughters, Dayanara, who is now 7, was diagnosed with Apraxia at the age of 2 and has been receiving therapy services since then. Apraxia is considered a developmental delay and their insurance didn’t cover speech therapy services for developmental delays.

The Foundation is proud to announce the FY15 Annual Campaign, the Legacy Campaign. This campaign is an investment in to our future as it is raising funds for our endowment which is a key resource for funding important projects and services in the future. Endowment funds are very important for a variety of reasons, with the most prominent of these is that an endowment provides a source of ongoing annual support to address important projects and services. A famous Chinese Proverb states, “The best time to plant a tree was twenty years ago, but the second best time is now”. Help us plant the seeds for our future now by investing in our endowment.
