Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.

Hilary was a vibrant, youthful loving woman, last in hospital in 1986. Yet in 2017 she was diagnosed as having terminal brain cancer. The NHS did it's best, but then in July Hilary entered the East Belfast Marie Curie Hospice.

Crossing the door was horrible, but once in the love and attention from all the staff was marvellous. They really made major efforts to keep Hilary as comfortable as possible. The cleaners joked, the chefs made specific meals to tempt her, the nurses were marvellous. The complementary therapists called and give her massages, etc.

They made Hilary's closing days as painless and peaceful as possible.

So, in return for their help with Hilary, I'm now asking you to support the hospice. It's easy, fairly painless.

Once you donate, justgiving send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

Ciaran Crossey for Team Hilary.
