Essentia Health-St. Mary’s Hospice Is Looking For Volunteers

My mother passed of Leukemia in 2000 after a month in Essentia enduring chemotherapy. Stem cell replacement was virtually a new treatment of the cancer and that was our hope at that time. Unfortunately she never made it through the chemo treatments and ended up in hospice. I commend the nurses and volunteers on 3E at Essentia. From the day we put her in for chemo therapy to the night we sang What A Friend We Have In Jesus at her hospice room bedside, they held our hands, gave us reassuring hugs and helped us understand the process of dying with dignity.

Finally, some good news on the war against drugs locally.  I spend quite a bit of time outside on the Lakewalk, in our parks, Park Point beach and other areas and have never really thought that I need to watch for used syringes.  I would be horrified if my family or dog were to get stuck with one.  A project in action for the past seven months is proving to be successful and that makes me feel better.  This is a phone number we should all know.
