Siskin Hospital announce Katherine Wolf will be the guest speaker at the 18th Annual “Possibilities: Siskin Hospital Celebrates Life Beyond Disability” event on Tuesday,
March 2. The event is virtual and will be livestreamed at 11:30 a.m.

Ms. Wolf is a model of strength and resilience following a life-threatening brain stem stroke that nearly took her life, just six months after her baby boy was born. A strong, beautiful 26-year-old looking forward to a bright future with her growing family, Ms. Wolf learned the meaning of hope and perseverance as she struggled to regain a sense of normalcy that we all take for granted.

“Possibilities” will also feature inspirational videos highlighting the daily miracles that take place at Siskin Hospital as patients learn to overcome disability. As these miraculous stories unfold before our eyes, we realize that with hope, life can be full of possibilities, said officials.

“Possibilities” is Siskin Hospital’s only community-wide fundraising event. The proceeds provide needed services for patients without adequate insurance to cover the cost of their care. The average cost for a charity care admission in FY2020 was $14,515 and the need remains great in the current pandemic.

A dedicated Steering Committee, led by Jim and Lynda Sattler, is working with Siskin Hospital staff to help coordinate the event.

Platinum sponsorship is available for $3,000; Crystal sponsorship for $2,000; and Patron sponsorship for $1,500. Individual registration is $50 per person. Advance registration for the virtual event is preferred. For more information or to register, please contact Donna Deweese at 634-1208 or ddeweese@siskinrehab.org. Online registration and donation opportunities are available by visiting www.SiskinRehab.org.

Totally at ease, smiling, smart, friendly and professional. What do they want? I think the entire crew is great, including ... (click for more)
