Do You Believe in True Love?


Rose and Romeo have been married for 63 years.  It was a lifetime of joy and laughter with your regular ups and downs of life as they welcomed six children into this world and lived fulfilling lives. Their love and respect for each is apparent even now as they face Rose’s diagnosis of dementia together.

Although Rose has moved into Mount St. Mary Hospital to receive the complex care she needs, Romeo still spends a few hours every day with her. It is a different from the life they had planned, but it is still one full of love and respect.

Romeo was a proud donor to Mount St. Mary Hospital even before Rose came to live here. He continues to make donations because he knows the impact his gifts have on the quality of life for those who’ve lost so much.

From purchasing specialized equipment that improve the care, comfort and dignity of residents and helping pay for the basics like a sweater or visit to the dentist to providing emotional and spiritual support and upgrading the rooms to guarantee they are safe and in good repair, every dollar you give means so much—maybe even more than you realize.

You can make your gift online at (click on the red donate now button in the top right corner) right now so your donation can be put to work immediately or mail in your cheque to Mount St. Mary Hospital at 861 Fairfield Road, Victoria BC  V8V 5A9.  Gifts received or postmarked on or before December 31 will receive a 2016 tax receipt.
