Why I volunteer...


 Bette Pierson ~ Board Member and Special Events Volunteer


It was something my mother said to me as she faced the end of her life. She wanted to know how to die with dignity. Since then, my family has lost many loved ones. We have found ourselves emotionally and physically drained as caregivers and overwhelmed by grief as we have tried to help them die with dignity and peace.

 During this time I learned about some of the services Hospice of Hancock County provides to patients and their families and I was so impressed. I want to support these wonderful and caring people. Their work is so important to our community.
