My life has been a lot of hospital visits and operations, and I made the decision to just let my body do its natural thing and have palliative care for as long as possible - to have quality of life at the end of my life.
I want to make sure everyone knows what St Helena Hospice is all about. It is supporting me every day to enjoy the life that I have, for as long as I can.
What’s really important to me, is that my family is supported because they're going through this just as much as me. That is a gift that I'll never be able to repay; they've freed up the people I love to be able to spend time with me.
St Helena has taken my health management and stress off my mum and she can be my mum again. She's not my nurse, she's not my carer, she's not doing anything apart from loving me, enjoying my time, and just being with me - and you just can't put a price on that.
They can do so much for so many people. They are just so good at what they do.
Everyone facing the end of life deserves the standards of care that St Helena is able to provide so that we can live our lives with dignity right up to the very last moment.
When you make a donation to St Helena Hospice, we are charged transactional fees by other companies, including fees for processing payments made to us, looking up addresses and validating bank account details.
We are very grateful to our donors who offer to offset some of these fees with a minor addition to their total amount. This is however completely optional and we are very grateful for your support whether or not you choose to contribute to processing fees.Close
We are able to claim an extra 25p on every £1 on your donation amount for no extra cost to you, as long as you are a UK tax payer; have paid enough income tax or capital gains tax in that tax year; and are donating your own money. If you pay less income tax and/or capital gains tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all of your donations in that tax year it is your responsibility to pay any difference.
