Our Mission - From the Words of Cicely Saunders

     Thank you to Dr. Ella Bittel for sharing this wonderful quote from Dame Cicely Saunders, the founder of the modern human hospice movement.  It perfectly sums up our beliefs and the reason we do this work:

You count because you are.  
And you will be of significance
until the last moment of your life.  
And we will do everything we can 
so that not only can you die in peace, 
but also live all the way until the end.

     We are eternally grateful for the work of Dame Saunders and Dr. Bittel, which inspires us and forms the foundation of all that we do.
