Wellstar Cherokee Health Park

The WellStar Cherokee Health Park at Holly Springs.

After being diagnosed with a rare brain tumor, a Wellstar team member and mother of two had to take medical leave for two months while she underwent treatment.

To alleviate some of the financial burden, the Wellstar Foundation covered two months of her mortgage payments. Wellstar aims to support many more workers across the System through the Team Member Emergency Assistance Fund, but more funding is needed.

The pandemic has caused an unprecedented need for support. This year, the Wellstar Foundation supported 317 team member requests, totaling nearly $470,000, representing a 38 percent increase in requests. With this increase in need, there is more work that needs to be done.

In the spirit of helping healthcare heroes who have given so much of themselves during the pandemic, Wellstar is asking the community to make a tax-deductible donation to the Wellstar Emergency Assistance Fund on Giving Tuesday which is Nov. 30.
