Las Vegas – Carole Fisher, president and chief executive officer of Nathan Adelson Hospice, was honored Oct. 19 with a national Kimberley Evans Compassion Award, which recognizes individuals who have shown exceptional generosity of time, heart, spirit and resources to support families and children in need. The award, which was presented to Fisher by Actor/Comedian Brad Garrett, was created in 2012 in honor of Maximum Hope’s vice president. Kimberley Evans works daily with hospitals, hospices and social workers nationwide to identify families struggling to make ends meet as they care for a child with life-limiting illness. She visits with children and parents, ensures they receive immediate assistance, and monitors their needs over time. Evans is an example of someone who makes a difference every day with her incredible humanity. Garrett said that for many reasons Fisher was “an obvious choice to receive this award that recognizes outstanding compassion.” “She has been involved with Maximum Hope for several years, and is one of the foundation’s biggest supporters,” Garrett said. “She is a woman who has based her life around helping people in their most difficult hour, allowing them the gifts of peace, comfort and dignity. Her commitment to the well-being of others and her consistent involvement in Maximum Hope makes her an ideal candidate to be honored for her benevolence and philanthropy.” Fisher received the award at Brad Garrett’s annual “All In For Good Celebrity Poker Tournament” at the MGM Grand.
