Dussing family says ‘Thank You’

Wife of the late Des Dussing, Marie Dussing, visited our In-Patient Unit on Friday, 21 April, with a donation of 50 pillow protectors. Des, who passed away on 12 March 2017 after a long battle with cancer, had always been a great supporter of our hospice.

He and his family contributed on a regular basis towards our ‘Brick Fund’ and in the founding days of Stepping Stone Hospice, Ascot Bedding & Furniture (the Dussing family business), assisted with the furnishing of our newly-built In-patient Unit.

“We are eternally grateful for the kindness and the loving care bestowed on Des in his last days, here at hospice, and we will continue to support you wherever and whenever we can,” said Marie.

Thank you Marie, Des was a beloved friend of Stepping Stone Hospice and “we will always remember him with kindness and gratitude,” said Sr Margi Bollman, who received the donation on behalf of Stepping Stone.

Courageous Conversations

About Courageous Conversations

Working at a hospice exposes us to every kind of human emotion and experience. What we have learnt is that we all have a story. We all experience heartbreak, heartache, uncertainty and difficult times in our lives. Courageous Conversations was borne out of this knowledge. Courageous Conversations is about talking about the 'unspeakable' issues that we are often confronted with and have no outlet to express or learn coping mechanisms for…
