Beatrice Grimes is a 75-year-old, sweet, kind-hearted woman, who is always concerned about the well-being of others. In 2021, Beatrice began receiving services from Navian Hawaii after being diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer. Even as she faces this difficult diagnosis, Beatrice remains as positive and generous as ever.

“We are so inspired by patients like Beatrice, who stay hopeful and spread joy to others—even when dealing with the physical, mental and emotional challenges that come with a life-altering health condition,” said Navian Hawaii President and CEO Tori Abe Carapelho.

Beatrice lives in a care home as her medical condition requires specialized treatment and attention. Without any relatives on the island, Beatrice manages to keep herself busy and her mind sharp with various hobbies and interests. She loves flowers, watching movies and keeping up with celebrity news.

In the past, we have been so fortunate to experience the generosity of our community which has demonstrated just how much can be accomplished when we work together. We hope that you will consider joining forces with us once again and donate a few little things to make a big difference in Beatrice’s life.

Beatrice’s finances are tight, with the majority of her money going to her care home. She would greatly benefit from the community’s support in receiving little things such as:

  • Movie tickets
  • Celebrity magazines
  • Flowers
  • A bedside calendar with inspirational quotes
  • Walmart or Target gift cards to buy clothes and other personal items

Donations can be delivered or mailed to the Navian Hawaii office at 860 Iwilei Road. For more information, call (808) 791-8067 or email
