LOROS is a charity whose aim is to enhance the quality of life of adult patients with cancer, progressive neurological conditions and end-stage organ failure for whom curative treatment is no longer possible. Patients are treated at the Hospice and in the community based upon clinical need, regardless of background and the ability to pay.
My mother Jane died from Motor Neurone Disease in March 2018 after living with the disease for several years. She was independent and active until she chose to say goodbye and was cared for with compassion and dignity by the lovely staff at LOROS. They respected her wishes and helped her to manage her own disease and maintain her independence until the end.
LOROS is dependent on donations and provides an essential service to the people of Leicestershire and Rutland, without it patients like my mother would not receive such excellent palliative care.
We are a group of cycling friends who are planning to cycle from Lands End to John O Groats in July 2019 raising money for the charities that have impacted us and our families. 100% of any money raised will go to the nominated charities, our trip will be self funded.
I hope you can spare a donation, however small, to support us.
