Why Support Avera?

Your gift to the Avera Foundation could make all the difference for someone you care about. By donating, you support lifesaving services that hospital revenue alone cannot provide. Give back to a health care community that’s helped you so it can do the same for your children, grandchildren, neighbors and friends.

For Emily and Jason Feldhaus, this meant many years of struggle, mental anguish and stress as they sought ways to find the right combination of treatment for their troubled son. Starting at the young age of 8, Emily could see the signs. Thankfully, she worked as an emergency department nurse at Avera Queen of Peace Hospital in Mitchell, SD.

Reasons to Give

  • As a mother who battled the horrible monster of addiction in my daughter, I know how personally frustrating, troubling and ultimately devastating it can be for families. Your gift supports patients and families facing the devastation of addiction by offsetting the cost of life-saving treatment.”
