Excitement ran high when construction started!  A group of giggling middle-aged women invaded the site for a photo shoot with our local newspaper.  The atmosphere on site was one filled with humble gratitude, excitement, loving anticipation….

We appointed a PR person, received a flooring donation, our sign boards arrived, we received a donation of hospital beds and equipment!  The greatest donation of this week had to however be when a young mother, suffering from Motor Neutron Disease donated a motorised wheelchair… It never even hit the office.  It went from her home to the home of a patient who is in the advanced stages of MND.  A new lease on life was given…

What a beautiful world we live in.  

goodbye

Vic was desperately ill for 10 years after a botched back operation. Vic's Journey ended on 18 January 2013 at 10:35. She was the most courageous person in the world and has inspired thousands of people all over the world. Vic's two boys are monuments of her existence. She was an amazing mother, daughter, sister and friend. I will miss you today, tomorrow and forever my Angle Child. https://tersiaburger.wordpress.com

  3. you are really into your thing, God bless you in your efforts, but in terms of hospice care etc and ideas for all involved, why not put together a page on your blog, with quotes of wisdoms learned from all those involved in your group, be they patients, family, staff or helpers. or get them all to make up a list of things they’d like to see changed in the world around them, awaken the senses of the world and those reading your blog.

      1. i’m dealing with some close folks who are nearing the end, and others who feel like it’s the end, and i always find the light when i think outside the box, basically, remembering what we have in common and what interests everyone, story, everyone has it, and when your in your story, life is an awful lot fresher

      2. Thank you for visiting. I assume you are a caregiver or associated with a Hospice? I cannot find more than one post on your blog. Am I doing something wrong?
