Hospice and Palliative Care Association thanks community of Quesnel

Thanks to the community’s generosity, the association bought two new, specialized wheelchairs

Editor,

The Quesnel and District Hospice and Palliative Care Association would like to thank you, the community of Quesnel, for your tremendous support and generosity at this year’s Hearts for Hospice Gala!

As part of our fundraising initiative, we were raising money for two specialized wheelchairs that would be used in Dunrovin Park Lodge and Hospice.

With your help, we were able to obtain the two wheelchairs!

They are now being used at Dunrovin Park Lodge and Hospice daily, and they have improved the spirits and quality of life for patients who are using them and would otherwise have been bed-ridden.

On behalf of the patients and our organization, you have our deepest gratitude for your kindness and support!

Once again, thank you Quesnel!

Suzannah Meir
