Diane Spaugh - Trellis Hope Run 2020
Dear Family, Friends and Colleagues,
As many of you are aware, both of my parents died under the care of Hospice & Palliative CareCenter. My father died in the comfort of his own home in 1997 after a very brief struggle with cancer. My mother died in 2008 at the Kate B. Reynolds Hospice Home.
Both of these experiences have defined me -- personally and professionally. Through these experiences, I have developed a better understanding of what families need at the end of life, which has informed my work as a hospice social worker and grief counselor. I'm grateful to Trellis for the amazing care my parents and my family received.
Thank you for supporting me this year! I've set a personal goal to raise $400. Your registrations and donations will help support such services as Complementary Therapies (music, massage, arts), Grief Counseling and Advance Care Planning.
