GIVE65 is underway now and you can make a difference!
The 65-hour online campaign raises money for LMM's Guardianship Services program. Funding will help us continue to care for indigent adults who cannot care for themselves, and who do not have family or friends to look after their best interests.
Among many other services, LMM guardians often help to make difficult end-of-life decisions, but they can also make dreams come true in the toughest of circumstances.
One LMM guardian faced a difficult decision with his ward, Mr. E., explaining the extent of his illness and the need for hospice care. Following several long conversations with his guardian, Mr. E. has come to terms with the progression of his illness, and together, they were able to make a positive thing happen.
Mr. E. had been wanting to propose to his girlfriend, who is also a resident at the same nursing facility. He popped the question and his guardian asked the hospice chaplain to officiate a commitment ceremony, as an alternative to a traditional wedding. The chaplain and guardian joined remotely due to COVID-19 safety precautions, and the love birds were joined in commitment in June.
