““I will never forget my mum. She had lived one life, but had touched so many.””- Claire Ramsden
Our patients and their families and carers are at the heart of everything we do
Your support means we can continue to deliver our care
With your help we can continue to develop LOROS as a place of care and support for terminally ill patients, their families and carers from across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.
Some of our patients, their families and their friends have kindly agreed to share their heart-warming stories...
““I will never forget the day my husband Kevin walked our daughter down the aisle. He held on for it and died six days later in LOROS.””- Diane Hutchinson
““We will never forget, Lizzy. We think of her every day and of her unbelievable courage, determination and infectious humour.””- Sheila Strong
““I will never forget my sister’s beautiful laugh, you would always know when she was in the room, she made everyone smile. Vibha's zest for life was her defining characteristic.””- Tanuja Bennison
““I will never forget my daughter Stella, she was my best friend and her big hugs were legendary.””- Karen Tomkins
“““At home, all of our emotions were running high, so we were arguing all of the time; I was at breaking point, but as soon as I came to LOROS, I was able to be a mum again. My kids can come and visit, and it’s quality time. They’ve noticed a difference in me; I’m more chilled out now.””- Shantelle Griffith
“"When the consultant mentioned getting married, he had the biggest beam on his face. That was it, the idea had been put in our heads"”- Trish Felts
Sharing how LOROS has helped you is an incredibly powerful way of supporting our work, and one which can help others realise what an important job the Hospice does.
