You raised $15,000…

 

Thank you to everyone who responded to our request for support at the end of 2017!

There were more than 60 individuals who gave because they care about Mount St. Mary Hospital residents. Together they raised over $15,000 to fund urgently-needed equipment, therapeutic programs, and room renovations.

As you can see, you, our donors, are championing excellent health care for seniors and those with disabilities. The impact on the lives of families in Victoria is incredible.

Imagine how many ups and downs our residents and their families must face. Aging, frailty, cognitive decline, medical conditions and diseases all take their toll and bring unexpected challenges. But there are lights of hope amongst everything they face and you, our donors, are one of those bright lights.

I wish you could meet our resident Dave and his wife Rose. Their joy and gratitude for your kindness and generosity is evident. They know that thanks to compassionate people like you, Dave has a home that supports his independence, guarantees his dignity, and enhances his quality of life.

Sadly, this doesn’t mean all of the needs of Victoria’s frail and elderly have been met. There are still other pieces of equipment that are urgently needed, life-affirming programs to run, and rooms to renovate.
