The blessing of being a hospice volunteer

I have volunteered for hospice for almost three years, and it has been a very rewarding experienc e.

Since I am a cancer survivor, I wanted to give back. I first heard of hospice on a bulletin board. I made the call and have never looked back.

I enjoy calling the families every Wednesday; I have built several special relationships through the years. When I call, I talk about their week, about anything they may need. I find myself carrying on long conversations. The patients are truly a blessing to life itself.

If you want or need something rewarding please volunteer. Call hospice at 592-7322 or Sharon at 910-471-3579. It’s truly a blessing.
