A local family was able to fulfill one of their family member’s last wishes thanks to Kathy’s Fund. Vickie Holmen grew up in Fairmont, IL and developed a special love for horses and dogs on her family’s farm. So, Dena Graff, director of Black River Memorial Hospital’s Hospice & Homecare took her own horse named Doc and dog Duchess to visit Vickie and other residents at the Meadowbrook senior living facility in Black River Falls. During the visit, Holmen shared memories of growing up and raising horses and her involvement in standardbred harness racing. Kathy’s Fund is a program administered by BRMH’s B-Home Services and Supplies, and assists families with fulfilling their last wishes.
