Our Forget-me-not Appeal is a lovely way to celebrate the life of your loved ones. It gives you the chance to remember someone important to you by receiving a personalised dedication card and special memory keepsake, whilst donating to St Ann’s.
By making a donation to St Ann’s through the Forget-me-not Appeal, you’ll be supporting our work with people with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses throughout Greater Manchester.
Jennie Gibson tells us what St Ann’s means to her, and how your support can make a difference.
My gorgeous man, Gib, was 41 when he passed away. He’d been diagnosed with cancer two years earlier, which he bravely fought for as long as he could. When we were told about St Ann’s, we were both worried about coming to a hospice, but I came for a look round and was shown the family rooms. I told Gib how lovely it was, and he agreed to be admitted.
I can honestly say that an awful situation was made more bearable from the day Gib became a patient at St Ann’s. The whole family was made to feel welcome and our little girls, Phoebe and Lila, were treated like celebrities! I cannot speak highly enough of the nurses, who embraced us like family and were with us every step of the way.
Now I’d do anything I can to help St Ann’s. This special Appeal offers people the chance to celebrate the life of a loved one by making a long-lasting online dedication. and attending a memorial service. Losing Gib is the hardest thing I’ve ever gone through, but the work the hospice does in ensuring families can be together during this time is nothing short of wonderful and I’d like to ask you to support the Forget-me-not Appeal.
