Hospice Organization Asks for Local Community To Help Family With Ill Baby

Dear Community Partners,

Emerald Coast Hospice strives to help members in our community during the most difficult time in their lives. Now we are asking for the community to assist one of our own who is facing a difficult time.

One of our case managers Rachel Hatcher and her husband Phillip are facing a difficult journey. Their unborn son Bryson has been diagnosed with kidney failure. Rachel will be going to Jackson Hospital in Miami to deliver her son who will immediately be put on dialysis while he awaits a kidney transplant. Rachel will remain in Miami to be with her son throughout his recovery. We ask everyone in the community to pray for Bryson and the whole Hatcher family.

Rachel, who resides in Blountstown, has dedicated her career for caring for her patients and their families. Her kindness and dedication has made a difference in numerous lives and now we are trying to make a difference in hers.

We at Emerald Coast Hospice are working to ease the financial burden on the family. We will be sponsoring “Butts for Bryson.” Our staff will cook Boston butts on July 1st to be delivered on July 2nd. All the proceeds will go to the Hatcher family to help with the many medical and other expenses they are incurring. We are looking to our community partners for assistance with donations of the materials needed for the event. Any way you can assist us would be greatly appreciated.

If anyone would like to purchase a Boston butt or give a donation for the Hatcher family, please contact our office at 850-526-3577. You can also come by our office at 4374 Lafayette St. Marianna, FL.

When one member of our community needs help, it is our honor to come to their aid. We know that that sentiment is shared. We thank you for your support.
