Wishing Star Foundation debuts new branding

Wishing Star Foundation, headquartered in Spokane, has just introduced new branding that better reflects the organization's mission. A new logo with multiple stars is symbolic of the multiple services Wishing Star Foundation offers to families of children with life-threatening illnesses and conditions.

Beyond granting wishes, Wishing Star Foundation provides on-going support for families who are going through difficult times with children who are ill. Wishing Star aims to make life easier for these people by increasing their quality of life. After the initial wish is granted Wishing Star continues to serve their families through a variety of gatherings, public events and on-going support activities. Wishing Star Foundation provides a community of care for their families, where many of the wish grantees support each other.

Providence recognized for Advanced Cancer Care

Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center has earned three-year, national accreditation from The Commission on Cancer (CoC), a quality program of the American College of Surgeons. To earn voluntary CoC accreditation, a cancer program must meet 34 quality care standards, be evaluated every three years through a survey process and maintain levels of excellence in the delivery of comprehensive patient-centered care.

Providence patients have available a full spectrum of cancer care including prevention, early diagnosis, cancer staging, optimal treatment, rehabilitation, life-long follow-up for recurrent disease and end-of-life care. When patients receive care at a CoC facility, they also have access to information on clinical trials and new treatments, genetic counseling, and patient-centered services including psycho-social support, a patient navigation process, and a survivorship care plan that documents the care each patient receives and seeks to improve cancer survivors' quality of life.
