John Dardis Memorial Hospice Gift Fund

John Dardis passed away from colon cancer in 2008 at the age of 60.  To carry on his tradition of caring for others, his family developed The John Dardis Memorial Hospice Gift Fund at Jamestown Regional Medical Center (JRMC) Foundation.  Through this fund, local hospice patients can receive money to purchase items of a non-medical need.  Knowing that lack of money can cause great hardship for hospice patients and families, having this fund as an option for an unmet need have been helpful to many.  “One of our greatest pleasures has been to give JRMC Hospice admissions a beautiful Sherpa Blanket,” says Patricia Dardis, John’s wife.

“From the bottom of our hearts we thank you for your willingness to be a part of this project.  If you are looking to donate a memorial gift, we invite you to consider this hospice gift fund.” Patricia Dardis.


Sherpa blankets provided to every hospice patient at JRMC.
