What qualifies as a Moment?
We only ask that the request be truly what the nominee desires. Our team spends time with the nominee and their family to learn about them and their hope for their experience. We understand that those we honor are facing terminal illnesses and time is precious. With that understanding, we can work with the nominee and family to coordinate moments within a short timeframe and while the patient is undergoing care with their health team. The Moments That Matter team, thanks to the support of our generous donors, has everything covered — fully coordinating and funding an entire experience.
