“My father, mother and brother all received end-of-life care provided by Hospice. The presence of each care giver made a lasting impression. When I remember the personal experience of saying good-bye to family, I am thankful that Hospice was there. Now it is my turn to be present of the needs of the Hospice Giving Foundation.”
