Thanks to Donna Stevens, LPN and Thomas Gardner, LPN, for representing NYOH at the 2016 Hospice Walk. Donna works at our Albany Medical Center office and Tom works in Rexford – but both previously worked in a hospice unit at the VA and know first-hand how important hospice services are to patient and their loved ones.
At this year's walk, Donna was joined this year by her daughters Laila and Ciara, her niece Arianna and sister Alice. Tom participated in the walk with his son, Griffin. Deborah Dzingle, administrative coordinator at Albany/Patroon Creek, also walked this year.
Donna explains why she supports the Hospice Walk, “My family has used hospice before and my grandmother is currently on hospice care and it’s truly amazing. It is very near and dear to my heart. ”
