Jamestown, New York (Friday, May 2,  2008)—Beth’s Candle Cottage in Findley Lake, New York, announces a fund-raising campaign to raise awareness and money for the WCA Hospital Dialysis Program, which provided over 12,000 treatments last year.  For every Dreamcatcher candle sold at Beth’s Candle Cottage, a portion of the sale will benefit the recently expanded dialysis program for enhancements for the patients’ comfort during their stay.

To help support the program, dreamcatcher candles may be purchased by visiting the store located off Interstate 86, just over the Pennsylvania border, in downtown Findley Lake, New York, or for immediate service, utilize their website, to order the candles on-line.  Beth’s Candle Cottage is open Monday through Friday, 11 a.m. – 5 p.m.

“As a family member of someone who requires dialysis treatment three times a week, I understand how important access to care can be, especially for someone in critical need,” said Mrs. Beth Bargar, proprietor of Beth’s Candle Cottage.  “This campaign gives me an opportunity to personally support my family and give back to the WCA Dialysis Unit for their compassionate and high level of care they provide to my mother-in-law.  I encourage everyone to step-up to the challenge for a great cause!”

The hand-poured dreamcatcher votive cost $1.00 each and may be purchased by the dozen.  The candles also come in unique jar sizes, handmade with the highest quality ingredients, combined with a unique scent specifically formulated for the dreamcatcher candle

“The need for dialysis is continually growing in our community,” said Pamela Meurer, R.N., WCA Hospital Dialysis Nurse Manager.  “We truly appreciate the generosity of the Bargar Family for assisting us with the resources we need to continue to enhance our services and provide high quality care.  Mrs. Bargar’s mother and father-in-law gave each of the dialysis staff a dreamcatcher votive for Christmas, providing our staff with many hours of enjoyable scent.”

The WCA Hospital dialysis program has been serving the region for over 30 years and recently expanded their program with additional treatment stations to meet current demand.  The program serves patients 18 years of age or older.  To learn more about the program, contact the unit at (716) 664-8226.
