Carly has purchased a Mother’s Day card in memory of her Mother, Diane Murray, who died of COPD at the age of 53.
Carly tells us:
I’m sure I’m not alone in finding it hard walking past all Mother’s Day cards and all the types of presents mum would like, as the day arrives.
This gives me the opportunity to buy a worthwhile gift for her and in honour of her. In doing it I’m extending the kindness she brought me up to have. I feel this adds a further meaning to the gift.
I think this City Hospice campaign is a really special opportunity to give, in thanks to mums, those with us and those who have departed, by making a real difference to the life of others.
The donation you give in honour of your mum will make a real difference to the life of someone and their ability to live with dignity and care.
Mother’s Day is a chance to give thanks for the never ending care and love mums, grandmothers and mum-figures provide. A donation of care is a really thoughtful and apt gift to show this appreciation.
You know this gift will not only be appreciated but will have a real impact. The hour of hospice care can’t be wasted the way an unwanted photo frame or assortment of hand creams might be.
The hospice gave my mum the chance to express her deepest fears regarding her illness and what would happen to her daughter’s. It also gave us both the chance to ask questions and understand what mum was going through. In this way, the hospice gave me the chance to understand my mum better and appreciate the massive challenges she faced each day, doing even the basic things needed to live.
The support we received was priceless
In helping me and my mum to understand and face up to what was happening. We could make informed decisions about the future we had. As heart-breaking as it was to face up to the inevitability of mum’s prognosis, understanding it meant we could make the time we had as meaningful as we could. We faced our fears together and created precious memories.
There’s not a gift that could ever be as big as what was given to me at this time. I’d like to be able to recognise the work hospices do for patients and their families. To make the most of the time they have together and loved ones live and die with control and dignity.
