Elvis impersonator dueled wrestlers on hospice trampoline

Posted: Updated:

Earlier today, Hamilton hospice patient Betty Griffin, 81, took a front-row seat at her very own wrestling match featuring 8 wrestlers on a giant trampoline at the Butler County Care Center.

A lifelong wrestling fan, Crossroad Hospice brought the thrill of the ring to Griffin, complete with a referee and sound bell. 

Crossroads Hospice made it all possible with Gift of the Day, a program that brings patients' ideas of the perfect day to life.

Residents cheered as the wrestlers dueled against an Elvis impersonator, Griffin's second love to wrestling. The residents and relatives also enjoyed a barbeque in the faculty parking lot.
