Since she was a young girl, Lacey had been enchanted with Tinker Bell, the fairy sidekick to Peter Pan. Lacey covered her walls in posters of the blonde fairy and slept every night with a Tinker Bell pillow. She dreamed of someday meeting Tinker Bell in person.
Time and again her family would make plans to take the trip to Florida to fulfill their daughter’s lifelong dream. Each time, Lacey would become too ill to travel.
At the age of 34, with the help of Arkansas Hospice Foundation, Lacey and her family finally made the journey to meet the enchanting sprite in person.
They say Tinker Bell’s speech consists of the sounds of a tinkling bell, which is understandable only to those familiar with the language of the fairies. That day, Lacey hung on every word Tinker Bell shared.
It’s hard to say what sparkled more, Tinker Bell’s wings or Lacey’s smile. For anyone who witnessed this dream coming true, there is no doubt it was magical.

I have nothing but the best things to say about Arkansas Hospice. They were so good to my Dad before he passed away. The love and care, compassion they showed to my dad was priceless. The nurses and CNA’s that took care of my Dad are the best and always be the best.
We are just starting our dad’s final journey and Arkansas Hospice has been a blessing. They’ve taught us so much already and provide as much support and comfort to the family as they do my dad. I’m grateful they’ll be walking this final path with us.
I love Arkansas Hospice. Every single employee has a heart of gold and takes the best care of their patients.
I would not hesitate at all to recommend this provider for anyone who is considering hospice care for themselves or for a loved one.
Arkansas Hospice took care of my Mom before she passed. It was my first experience with any hospice and I was amazed. They took such great care of her. They treated her with dignity and respect until the end.
So many thanks for the way your staff treated my very dear friend, Jeff, as he raced toward the finish line. Words can’t express my gratitude for helping us to care for him and keep him comfortable. Top-notch professionalism and immediate responses to requests for assistance.
