Our Campaign Story

ends 14 Feb 2020, 11:59 PM

In 2018, a good friend spent her last days in Assisi Hospice. Jacinta had bone cancer, and it was diagnosed after it had metastasized. She was in pain, especially towards the end.

I was blessed to have had a chance to visit her twice: the first time, she was still pretty lucid, whilst the second time, she was drifting in and out of consciousness.

In 2019, my uncle was diagnosed with prostate cancer. We also found it after the cancer has spread. But he lives overseas. How I wish that he could spend his last days on earth in Assisi Hospice.

Why?
When I visited my friend, I was struck by the peace and calm that prevail in Assisi Hospice. At one visit, I also read numerous thank you cards written by the family members of those who had passed on before. They all testified to the kindness and loving care that the Assisi Hospice team provide to our brothers and sisters who are nearing the end of their lives this side of heaven. Assisi Hospice has inpatient, home care assistance, as well as a day care.

Perhaps my uncle may not be able to enjoy the wonderful experience in the Assisi Hospice, but I am hoping that anyone who needs it, will be able to get it. That is why I am starting this campaign.

If you are unable to help financially, that is okay, too. Please spread the word around.

And please, say a prayer for all who are in need of hospice care, their families, and for the team in all hospices throughout the world.

Thank you.

About The Charity

Journey with us to support our needy patients with terminal illness and their caregivers. Assisi Hospice provides palliative care for patients and families that preserves their dignity and quality of life. Patients of any race, faith and financial position are cared for by our team of specialist doctors, nurses, allied health and pastoral care professionals. When faced with life limiting illnesses, our patients receive medical care, as well as psychosocial, emotional and spiritual care.

We provide care for patients across the continuum of Home Care, Inpatient and Day Care. This allows patients and family members to journey with a clinical team they are familiar with, and to receive care in the way that they need. Our six-storey purpose-built hospice provides a homely ambience with cosy spaces for patients and their loved ones. With 85 Inpatient beds, including specialised wards for Dementia Palliative Care and Paediatric Palliative Care, a Day Care Centre and the outreach of our Home Care team, we serve more than 2,000 patients a year.

Founded in 1969 by the Sisters of the Franciscan Missionaries of the Divine Motherhood (FMDM), we are a charity supported by donors, volunteers and corporate organisations who journey with us in our cause.
