Your support helps people like Mark and their families.
Mark was just 54 when he died in our care on Valentines Day in 2021. His wife, Emily, shares his story and why Mark so passionately believed no-one should be afraid of hospice care.
"Our experience of Saint Francis Hospice is overwhelmingly positive. Mark felt so strongly that if people were unfortunate enough to be told they had a terminal illness, that they should feel relief at being referred to the hospice, without any fear. It was this feeling that sparked Mark’s motivation to share this story."
