Welcome to My Personal Page
2017, is our 8th year of participating in the Kate B Reynolds Hospice Hope Run. The following is what I wrote our first year...2010, 5 short months after my brothers passing. I have and will always have a special place in my heart for this organization, this place, the staff, and the volunteers that make our loved ones last days comfortable for not only them, but us, the family. Thanks to fundraisers, donations, and the hard work of many, the Kate B Reynolds House has gotten BIGGER AND BETTER since Alex was there. Please, if you can, help our team to give back to this very special place, and these very special people.
Most of us sometime in our lives have heard of Hospice. I personally had heard of them, but had never had any contact with them, their facility, or staff.....Until Oct. 2009 when my 41 year old brother, Alex, found out he had stomach cancer. For a short while, Hospice came out to care for Alex at home. He then went to the Hospice House in Winston-Salem in Nov. 2009. He was there for two weeks, before he sadly lost his hard fought battle and passed away on Dec. 5, 2009. I truly do not know what we would have done without them!! Not only did they take remarkable care of Alex...they took care of us! The facility has two family rooms that have stocked kitchen areas and beautiful living areas with a huge fireplaces, large screen TV's, overstuffed chairs....all the comforts of home. We were allowed to spend as much time with him as we wanted...day or night. The staff are some incredible, kind people with huge hearts!! They made our time there...as comfortable as it could be! Without the help of donations, none of this would be possible. Please help us in giving back to this place and these wonderful people that give so much to others...anything you can donate is appreciated...it all adds up!!!
Thank you so very much,
