Meet the Haskells, Philanthropists Extraordinaire!

Sometimes, you meet people who seem to have gone through life with everything mapped out for them; as if all they had to do was show up and glide through it. They seem to personify an enviable composure and camaraderie, not only rare but compelling. Perhaps this is the best way to begin to describe philanthropists extraordinaire Frank and Betty Haskell. As newly minted residents at Cypress Cove, the continuing care retirement community (CCRC) at Health Park Florida in Fort Myers, they have already distinguished themselves for their empathy and advocacy for those most vulnerable; namely, children with cancer and blood diseases.As they enter the grand foyer, one can't help but notice their postures. They are both straight and tall; Frank towers at 6' 3" and Betty fits right in at 5' 7". Their faces are friendly, exuding a confidence that's contagious as is their easy affection for one another. She's just come from an early morning swim and he from the tennis court. And if such octogenarian assets are attributable to good genes, it shouldn't be denied that their daily disciplines of physical activity are surely an enhancement.As you will soon learn, swimming and tennis aren't the only activities that engage their bright minds. In fact, since moving to Cypress Cove less than a year ago, their transition from 23 engaging years as residents of The Forest Country Club community (some five miles away) might best be described as seamless. We knew right away that we felt at home here, Betty asserts. We knew we made the right decision.But first, how did this charming couple now celebrating 59 years of wedded bliss meet? Frank is the first to admit that it all began in Boston where he was a student at Northeastern University and Betty worked in the registrars office. Its the only reason I graduated cum laude, he teases as Betty twinkles. Northeastern was one of the first schools that allowed you to integrate studies with work, so by the time you graduated you knew where you were going.Franks confidence and leadership skills were perfect for a profession in sales. Throughout his successful roles, he became president of Moore Business Systems and retired as Vice President of Burroughs Corporation; both forerunners of what would become computer driven business technologies. Such achievements came with a caveat, however. As Frank steadily climbed the ladder, the Haskell family of five would move a total of ten times throughout the country perhaps one of the reasons why they now take such delight in being settled at Cypress Cove!But as the visit continues, one begins to grasp that beneath their quiet intensity resides a preoccupation of transcendent purpose, born out of sorrow and unexpected loss...Life would deal them a cruel blow when their beloved daughter Barbara was diagnosed with breast cancer at the tender age of 32. And after a four year battle including two bone marrow transplants, Frank reminds Barbara lost her heroic fight in 1995.It is in Barbara's memory that the Haskells created Barbara's Friends the Southwest Florida Children's Outpatient Cancer Fund, in partnership with the Lee Memorial Health System.When Barbara was going through her own treatment, she often encountered children enduring similar treatments for their cancers or blood diseases, explains Betty. She marveled at their bravery.Establishing a charity in Barbara's honor would become the couples magnificent obsession. It pained Barbara greatly to see these little ones suffer, Frank adds.Barbara's Friends now approaching its 16th year has raised over $8.7 million since its inception. It has helped establish and equip a pediatric hematology and oncology center that provides comprehensive support to children battling these illnesses within our local communities as well as their families. The fund also helps cover expenses for uninsured or underinsured patients. No child is ever turned away, Frank clarifies. But keep in mind that more than half either have no insurance or have only Medicaid and rely on charities like ours.Betty likes to tell the story of how they came to identify the rainbow as the logo of Barbara's Friends.The day we opened the center we were walking out to the car and suddenly we looked up and saw a beautiful rainbow across the sky, she recounted. It seemed like a message from Barbara; a reminder of the song, Somewhere Over the Rainbow, from her favorite movie, The Wizard of Oz.And now, thanks to her devoted parents, the land that Barbara dreamed of where little blue birds fly beyond the rainbow is being realized each and everyday for children in need throughout our community. And although you wont find a pot of gold at the end of this rainbow, what you will find is a Heart full of purpose, passion and possibilities in Barbara's name. Amen.Editors Note: About Barbara's Friends The rainbows arc also symbolizes the bridge now spanning the gap that previously existed between the pediatric oncology/hematology facilities in Miami and Tampa; thus making care and treatment accessible for families in our community. Today, thanks to Barbara's Friends, over 100 children receive treatment each week and more than 3,000 children have received treatment to date. To learn more about Barbara's Friends or to give a gift call 239-985-3550 or visit www.leememorial.org/foundation. This article was submitted by Bernadette La Paglia for The Seniors Blue Book.

Affordable GPS Monitoring

Monitoring Solutions of SWFL provides GPS monitoring to the memory impaired, and those with other medical conditions. Services are available throughout the State of Florida, utilizing the S-911 bracelet - the most comprehensive tool available for caregivers and family members.The S-911 is a watch-style bracelet which tracks location via satellite and cell phone signal. The S-911 software also has geo-fencing capability. This means the caregiver is able to create both inclusion and exclusion zones for the person wearing the device. If the wearer needs to stay within a certain area, the instant the boundary is crossed a text message is sent. Conversely, if there is a danger area such as a lake, a text will be sent when the wearer gets too close.The S-911 is the only bracelet on the market featuring a built in cell phone. This is excellent for those in the early stages of memory impairment who find themselves lost, or when a fall occurs. The wearer presses the panic button & the bracelet will call for assistance right from their wrist. The S-911 also has an impact detector so that if the wearer falls, or is in an auto accident and is incapable of pressing the panic button, an alert is still sent & their caregiver will be instantly notified. We offer a solution to anyone who has an illness where precious seconds can determine whether someone receives the help they need quickly enough to save their lives, reports Zodia King, President of the company.The S-911 bracelet is available for purchase or can be leased. There is a monthly service fee for access to the tracking website and data transmission. Monitoring Solutions also offers monitoring service for families whose loved ones are local but live out of state.The highest level of service offered, which includes lease, website/voice and monitoring service is still less than $5/day making it a very affordable solution for many applications.At Monitoring Solutions our mission is to assist families and caregivers by providing a dignified method of constant contact which enables prolonged independence at a low cost.Editor's Note: This article was submitted by Monitoring Solutions of SWFL.

Life Happens - Plan For It!

Most of us have had a family member or friend, who as the result of an unforeseen illness or accident needed long term care. For many, that memory is of our parents caring tirelessly for our grandparents, or one of our parents caring lovingly for the other. In these situations, those with a quality long term care plan in place faced the situation with less stress, less anxiety, and less loss of savings.Long term care is an integral part of retirement planning. Having a plan for care is really about protecting your independence and lifestyle, and the peace-of-mind knowing youve taken steps to shield your family from the emotional, physical, and financial challenges needing care can present. The alternative is to self-insure. If you choose to do so, keep in mind that raising the monies required for care may not be as simple as you envision. What bank account would you reach into first? What are the tax ramifications of selling your investments? And what happens if the market is in a downward cycle when you need these funds?The greatest misconception is that long term care insurance is best dealt with later rather sooner. The truth, however, is that the best time to investigate insurance is before you need it. Obtaining coverage can become difficult and costly - perhaps impossible - once an accident or illness has changed your good fortune. None of us know when we might experience a change of health, and studies show that roughly 70% of those over 65 will need care.There are many more insurance options to choose from today versus just a few years ago. Policies now offer the opportunity to have monies deposited directly to your checking account, to be spent as you please, possibly to have a family member or friend care for you. There are also life insurance policies that allow you to spend down the death benefit if a need for care arises, and whatever is unspent can become a legacy for those you care about most.To navigate the multitude of options, talk to someone who specializes in long term care insurance - someone who understands the difference between company offerings, and who represents a variety of insurers. Most important, be sure the agent you select truly has your best interest at the heart of any decision.Editors Note: This article was submitted by Mitchell Dannenberg, CLTC of LTCI Marketplace. For a complimentary review of your current insurance policies, and an assessment of how long term care coverage may help protect your retirement dream, you are invited to call Mitchell at (239) 461-5511, or visit their website at http://ltcimarketplace.com.
