Douglas & Barbara's Story: Giving Back After two stays at St. John’s Rehab, Barbara Crowe (pictured with her husband Douglas) feels lucky to have been a patient here.
“The care here is excellent,” Barbara smiles as she remembers her time at the hospital. “I love the attitude of the staff here. They’re so supportive,” she recalls.
Barbara and Douglas have generously returned the support. As members of the Rebuilding Lives Legacy Society, they are part of a growing community that has planned a future gift for St. John’s Rehab in the form of a bequest, a life insurance policy, an annuity, an endowed fund, or another trust arrangement.
By remembering the hospital in their estate planning, these committed donors can gain a taxable benefit to help their own financial situation today, while also helping the hospital in the future.
What inspired Douglas and Barbara to remember St. John’s Rehab in their will? Douglas explains: “Statistics show that we are living longer. This means that there will be not only a continuing but a greater need for the kind of special services that St. John’s Rehab provides.”
His advice to others? “For me – life is all about living. To live one has to learn how to give, to share and to receive. I can think of no better way of demonstrating giving than by supporting St. John’s Rehab, who does so much to enhance the quality of life to so many people.”
Thank you to Douglas and Barbara, and to all of our donors, for your unwavering support of St. John’s Rehab!
