“I give through employee deduction because I believe in what Valley View stands for and I want to be a part of helping our patients and fellow coworkers.”

I’ve had an opportunity to work to help raise money, initially for Valley View’s Cancer Center. It has been one of the joys of my life. Now with the new program Health4Life, I’m even more exhilarated, because I think preventative medicine is really the best thing that can happen in this valley. When people give to the Foundation, everyone in the valley benefits.

This is such a small community that by donating to the Foundation, you’re not just giving money to a hospital that is treating cancer patients, you’re giving to your neighbor, or your neighbor’s child, or your coworker, or it could be your child’s teacher who is going through something.

Connie Warnick star

Ten years ago we donated to Valley View to start a heart center to help people who’ve had a heart attack. The cardiac care in the valley has gone so far beyond that. We now have people who come from Texas, from Florida and from Spain who are getting services here at Valley View that they couldn’t get somewhere else.

“I give to the Foundation because I love Valley View Hospital!  I am grateful to be an employee and a patient I feel taken well taken care of as an employee and a patient.  I want to give back to this organization that has given to me.”
