A picture of Executive Director Carol Derbyshire against a black background.Since 1979, The Hospice of Windsor and Essex County Inc. has been a beacon of hope to families learning to deal with the challenges associated with life-altering diagnoses. We have helped to guide our patients and their loved ones through the various stages of their journey. However, the Hospice has now reached a critical point in our development, in which we have the opportunity to look at how we can make a positive impact in our communities that is sustainable for the future.

This is where you and The Hospice for Life Foundation play a critical role: a gift to the Foundation is your public commitment to ensuring outstanding community care for generations to come. I am asking for your help to mobilize leadership in our community and embrace the community spirit of passion that has made Hospice the leading palliative hospice care facility in the country. My experience has taught me that passion is the root of authenticity; passion is the extreme expression of that which we love and that which inspires us. Can we truly appreciate what we have, where we are, and the exceptional feats we can accomplish without it? Passion is about supporting what you love in the community that you love!

Your gift to the Foundation will ensure that your loved ones and their children will have access to outstanding services when they need them. I strongly believe that there is no limit to what we can achieve when we truly believe in what we are doing; I hope you’ll join me in becoming a community leader and beacon of hope for Hospice. Excellence in our community is limited only by what we can dare to dream.
