Short Story

As many of you know, my beautiful mama passed away in the gentle care of Cadence and colleagues at Hospice Halifax in late November of 2020.

Writing that now doesn’t make it feel any more realĀ  – but I also can’t describe how strongly I feel about this organization. Mom was at hospice for about 36 hours in total – but my family and I were supported by this place even before we arrived. I can’t tell you what that’s meant for me in the past 6 months, although it certainly solidified my position that every person who wants hospice care in their final days, deserves care that we received at Hospice Halifax.

My campaign started out as a little spark, thinking I could raise $500 for this angel organization before Mother’s Day – my first without my mother. And – you all have blown me away with your generosity.

If you new my Mom, you know she would be embarrassed by the spotlight – but if thinking of her makes you feel comforted, supported or loved – as my Nan would say “she did her job.”

Thank you all so much for helping me, help Hospice, to feel that way too.

With just a week and a bit to go before the event, I would love to say I blew my $2000 goal away too – as I “hike” around and post some pictures to the gram to commemorate this as my first annual #hike4hospicehalifax

All my love,

Sarah
