Why I Believe in Hospice

My mother experienced Hospice of Frederick County care at the end of her 91 year life. She moved to Frederick and was diagnosed immediately with stage 4 cancer. She had been healthy all her life and was prepared to fight it. Hospice and especially the Kline House made her end of life one of peace and wonderful memories. She was stubborn and her own person to the end.

Why do I financially support Hospice?

Mom would not come and live with my husband and myself. She grew up living with her sister and family and made the vow she would never live with family. Mom's care through Hospice was excellent with nothing being too much for the ladies to do for her.

When her life was over, there was no better way to honor my mother than to financially support the place that made her last days a happy and peaceful place to take her final breath.
