Welcome to Carol's VI Hospice Support Page
Not surprisingly, this year's Cycle of Life Tour for hospice care has been postponed due to COVID-19. However the need for hospice care is as great as ever! So, each team is being encouraged to continue with their own fundraising efforts to support their local hospice. There are 4 members from my regular biking group, the Half Fast Riders, that are a part of the Oceanside Hospice Wheelers this year and we have decided to do a 200km ride over two days on our own at the end of July, likely in the Campbell River area.
Our group recently lost another one of our members after a relatively short battle with cancer. Rick was a very kind and supportive person, my first memory of him is waiting patiently for me at the side of the road when I couldn't keep up in my early days with the group. We miss him greatly. Having now lost 2 riding friends to cancer in the past year and a half has emphasized to me how important support services are. I know that our local Oceanside Hospice is there to provide valuable support to those in palliative care and to their family and friends. It’s a cause I believe in. Vancouver Island hospices provide end-of-life palliative care, counseling, bereavement support, and at-home care to over 12,000 patients and family members each year. Despite the value of their services, none are fully funded by our already stretched thin health care system. The care and comfort they provide is only possible because of generous community support.
I’m trying to raise $2000 for our local Oceanside Hospice, our team goal is $20,000. But we need your support.
