“When I was approached to serve on the Assisi Hospice Board, I felt like life has come full circle. Various people at Assisi had been my mentor in the early years of Rachel House. Their generosity and love are what I have come to associate Assisi with. And over the years, I have heard the same words being used by the people whose lives have been so beautifully touched by the Assisi team.
I am humbled by this invitation to serve, and honoured to have the opportunity to contribute to a cause that is so close to my heart.”
