Leave a Lasting Impression.  Here's How.
Hallie Olson Wastell, Hallie's Hearts Endowment

Hallie lived with a fun-loving, courageous luminescence that brought good will to her life, family, friends, and the good of others. She died in 2016, after a four-year fight with ovarian cancer, during which she was a constant torch bearer for the fight against ovarian cancer.

Now, Hallie's Hearts Endowment will help to continue her effort in carrying that torch.
