Falls Church, Virginia - July 29, 2020 - The EagleForce Warrior Foundation has donated $30,000 to Capital Caring Health supporting the organization’s So No One Dies Alone Program for Veterans and their families.
Through The EagleForce Warrior Foundation’s signature Vet Jets Program, private and commercial air travel will be provided to families of Armed Forces Veterans nearing the end of life to be at the bedside of their loved one. The grant will also cover ground transportation expenses and is available to families who do not have the financial resources to cover travel expenses.
“We are extremely honored to partner with The EagleForce Warrior Foundation and provide this unique program to our nation’s Veterans. The So No One Dies Alone Program will allow families the opportunity to spend final moments together with their loved one, bring joy, and reduce loneliness as they near the end of life,” said Tom Koutsoumpas, President & CEO, Capital Caring Health.
The importance of family members, loved ones, or simply another human being at the bedside of a dying individual can’t be understated, and a family member or loved one’s presence at the bedside of a dying individual is something that is deeply valued and cherished. In some cases, patients hold on for several days as they wait for a visit from a loved one to share one last special connection.
Founded in 2018, The EagleForce Warrior Foundation was established to support wounded, ill and injured military service members and their extended families.
“We recognize the sacrifices made by our military and their families, and we’re proud to be a part of this new program ensuring our Veteran heroes are surrounded by the compassionate presence of another human being as they near the end of life,” said Cheryl Campbell, CEO, The EagleForce Warrior Foundation.
The So No One Dies Alone Program is integral to Capital Caring Health’s mission to provide patients and their families with advanced illness care of the highest quality. The program centers on ensuring our nation’s heroes the dignity and solace at the end of life that can best be found in the compassionate presence of another human being.
