Simply From The Heart (SFTH) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to enhancing well-being, boosting self-esteem, and improving the quality of life for critical and terminal care patients through therapeutic personal care services. During hospital visits, such as Bedside and Pop-up Pampering with the Heart Squads, we’ve touched the lives of over 7,000 patients, giving them a brief escape from their illness and a reminder of their inherent worth and strength.
When founder, Jackelyn Kastanis spent a year visiting her best friend Brooke Bolley in the hospital, she witnessed first-hand how someone could be stripped of normalcy. When you have a serious illness, everything about your life changes. In addition to the treatments and day-to-day pain of being sick, people often become depressed, lonely, and isolated. Simply From The Heart helps to dispel those hardships.
In memory of her best friend, Simply From The Heart was created.
