I’m writing to invite you to stand alongside Jo, who shares her story below, by dedicating a light in memory of a loved one.
Whilst in our care, my team and I did everything we could to help Jo's husband Brendan live life to the full, providing medical & nursing care, counselling and physiotherapy. Like many people we look after, he wanted to stay at home for as long as he could. We gave him all the medication, equipment and care to make that possible.
But here at The Hospice of St Francis, helping people to live life to the full means taking care of family and friends too. So we help, and support, for as long as we’re needed.
Light up a Life is about so much more than remembering. It’s about community, and making sure that people who are going through incredibly tough times get the support and care they need.
With your donation, we can make sure that parents like Jo, and their children, are not on their own.
Light up a Life isn’t about one life. It’s about all our lives. All the children who have lost their mum or dad, and need support to make it through. All the wives, husbands and partners who have lost their best friend, and who need a hand to hold and someone to talk to.
With warmest thanks and best wishes,
Dr Sharon Chadwick
