Your support makes a difference …… by playing the Cornwall Hospice Care lottery you are helping people like Pat and Keith, who unexpectedly needed our services and whose experiences Keith has shared with us here.
‘The hospice was a safety net for me at the lowest point in my life’
Keith and Pat were a devoted couple who, in Keith’s words, had their lives wrecked by cancer.
Pat was taken poorly while visiting family in Italy in February, and on the 28th of April she died.
During her illness, Pat spent three days at St Julia’s Hospice and then her final 13 days at Mount Edgcumbe Hospice.
When Keith discovered that over £4 million each year needs to be raised to provide this outstanding care, he was determined to help. He has now devoted much of his spare time to keeping Pats legacy alive by helping fundraise for Cornwall Hospice Care. By doing so, Keith is helping to secure the care his family needed in those difficult times, for those who need it now and in the future.
