While many of us have seen and heard about the Langley Hospice Society around town, it’s likely that we didn’t pay much attention until we were ourselves in need of their services. The Langley Hospice Society provides assistance to families for palliative or bereavement care and support in the Langley’s and surrounding communities. This includes not only in-hospice care, but also grief and loss support programs and services for children, teens, and adults, all without any cost to families, and without any referral needed.
My guest today has been the Communications and Funds Development Manager for the Hospice Society since 2013, and has spent most of her career in nonprofits. She is also the Former Community Giving Coordinator for the Canadian Cancer Society and the Relay For Life. Please welcome Shannon Todd Booth.
