National Family Caregivers Day

Friday, February 17th, 2023

National Caregivers Day is observed on the third Friday in February — on February 17th next year. The day honors individuals who selflessly provide personal care, and physical- and emotional support to those who need it most. There are different types of caregivers who are not just limited to the health sector. The types are: family caregiver, professional caregiver, independent caregiver, private duty caregiver, and informal caregiver. Some of them are not always paid, which is why it is essential to appreciate and thank them for their long-term commitment.


The Bellingham Brain Cancer Walk

Date TBA

The Bellingham Brain Cancer Walk is the inspiration of the late Hannah Dashiell, whose grandfather Jerry Jerowski, died of brain cancer in 2007. Hannah did not get to see her dream to completion. In early January 2014, a tragic car accident took Hannah’s life. Her fellow classmates, family friendd9ad75b9-f357-470c-931e-b513955f826cs, and members of the community have taken it upon themselves to see Hannah’s dream brought to completion. The 2019 walk is a tribute to Hannah’s life and an honor to her family. Part of Hannah’s vision for the Bellingham Walk was that it would become an annual event for the city of Bellingham. It is our hope, too, that this walk would continue to be a tribute to Hannah and her family, a service to the community of Bellingham, and an event to support a Cure in our Lifetime.
