We believe in supporting ALL end of life care and providing Bereavement support to children and adults.
The benefits of our Bereavement programs are far reaching, both economically and socially. Resources spent on the initial stages of a child’s grief and adults grief mitigate the long term costs of not addressing the often profound grief that manifests in behavior that can be costly to the child and adult, the school system and the community.

I am inspired to volunteer simply because I want to help organizations and individuals in caring for each other and those around them. To play a part in sustaining the worthwhile and needed services for those who utilize them is very important to me. I want to help make a difference for as many people and organizations as possible.
Which cause(s) are you most passionate about and why?
At present I am helping Junior Achievement (volunteer instructor), the Mission Hospice Society (Board member/Treasurer), Rotary Club of Mission Mid Day (Treasurer), Mission Regional Chamber of Commerce (Past President, Treasurer and current Board member). My interests are varied and I help where I can. The Mission Hospice Society and Junior Achievement (JA British Columbia) are very important to me. I have input into the direction of support for people who are in the final stages of life and need the comfort and tremendous care that the Hospice provides. I also help to address an area that is not being effectively covered in schools by instructing students on all aspects of money, finance, saving and planning. I also have a passion for health and fitness and volunteer with several clubs.

Winning the $50,000 SimpleGenerosity grant from Envision Financial, a division of First West Credit Union will help Mission Hospice Society expand its programs to help children understand they are not alone with their loss, and to provide support and care in a non-judgemental environment for them to process their grief. When children suffer a loss, it is normal to feel different and alone; our programming addresses this by bringing children together and building positive and lasting relationships and memories together. As children who are grieving typically fall through the cracks of typical and available programming through school counsellors and local mental health facilities, expanding these programs is paramount to the healthy development of our grieving child and youth population. Thank you for helping us celebrate Canada150 and strengthening our communities with SimpleGenerosity!
