"The initial shock of learning that I had a life threatening illness left me incredibly depressed and sad. I never thought that I would get over these feelings until I came to St. Joseph's Hospice. The support I received was wonderful and helped me to come to terms with my illness and now I embrace everyday for what it brings."
