Extending others hope by providing relief in their situation is a huge part of Daniel's Heart. You'll be given the chance to list specific requests that lift the burden for the "Heart Warrior" you nominate.

WHO IS ELIGIBLE TO NOMINATE?
Anyone, even the one who carries the ailment, as long as they can complete the paperwork.
ARE THERE NOMINEE AGE RESTRICTIONS?
Yes, we will assist families of loved ones suffering and/or the one carrying the ailment ages 1-70.
WHAT IS CONSIDERED AN AILMENT? We consider an ailment a diagnosis, or any event that caused an otherwise healthy person's life to change forever physically. If the person is suspected to complete a full recovery, they don't qualify. The ailment must diagnosed by a doctor, and considered progressive, malignant or a degenerative illness/disease or caused by an accident (either physical or even naturally such as a stroke) that created physical trauma and impact one's life on a daily basis.
WHY MUST THE PERSON BE CARED FOR IN THEIR HOME? We want to reach those specifically who experience long suffering and are being cared for in their home. We know that most often one can't afford specialized care or simply wants to be/die at home. This weighs on the family as a caregiver and we have a heart for not only the one suffering physically but the family as well, as we know it impacts them greatly too. The person still qualifies if they are in temporary rehab facilities, with the intention of going back home.
IF THE NOMINEE IS STILL IN THE HOSPITAL OR SEEKING ON GOING MEDICAL CARE CAN THEY BE NOMINATED? Certainly yes! Just as long as a doctor's note, and medical records show their life has most certainly changed forever because of their disease, illness or life altering ailment. We assume most applicants will be seen by a doctor regularly.

WHAT KIND OF REQUESTS CAN I MAKE? That is up to you! It must meet a specific need that provides relief to your situation. Remember, we provide one time "gifts" not on going assistance.
DOES THE FAMILY NOMINATED NEED TO BELIEVE IN THE PRINCIPLES YOU'RE FOUNDED ON? No. Our desire is to bring relief to anyone and everyone whose life has been altered by illness, disease or physical trauma. We will not discriminate on race, beliefs, or sexual orientation.
DOES NOMINATING A HEART WARRIOR (PERSON CARRYING THE AILMENT) COST ME ANYTHING? No. However, if you believe in our mission to help others in crisis, we would love for you to join in partnership with us.
