Hospice was there for my family when my grandmother passed away. Never, had I witnessed the death of a loved one before, but I am eternally grateful that hospice was present to ensure my grandma and my parents, aunts and uncles had the support they needed to take those final steps together. I truly don't know how they would have functioned without the guidance, assistance and knowledge of the hospice team. They kept my grandma's pain under control, our family informed of what to anticipate and how to help grandma should she be uncomfortable, and almost most importantly, maintained my grandmother's dignity until her last breath. I ask you to make a contribution, small or large, to support my walk to raise money for Hospice of Hilo. Their angels have touched so many lives in our community and I hope you will help me ensure their work can continue for many years to come!
