New Braunfels, TX: A Canyon Lake man is likely facing his last months of life and all he wants for Christmas is to spend time with his family. Mr. Myers’ children and grandchildren are all coming home for Christmas and he and his wife wanted this Christmas to be a very special one for the whole family. Carol Irwin, owner of Buttermilk Café, and Mark Segovia, one of their lead chefs, are making sure of it. With all the food donated from the restaurant and Segovia volunteering his time to prepare and deliver the meal on Christmas day, the Myers family will be getting a real treat with a Christmas dinner for all twenty-one of them. This act of kindness enables the family to spend more time visiting with their husband, father and grandfather.
Hope Hospice has been experiencing many acts of kindness this season. Adobe Café and Sysco foods donated food and labor to the Hope Hospice Foundation Pearl Anniversary Gala, ensuring more funds raised would go straight to patient care. Home Instead, as they do annually, facilitated the adoption of a dozen Hope Hospice patients so those without friends and family nearby would get a Christmas gift.
Literally thousands of individuals, businesses and other organizations have made gifts of all sizes to the Hope Hospice Foundation this season. On behalf of families like the Myers, the Board, Staff and Volunteers extend their gratitude. Funds raised are used to support Hope’s programs and services, primarily the Children’s Grief Program and the Community Assistance Program that assists under- and un-insured patients, most of whom are working-age professionals whose illnesses caused them to lose their jobs and, therefore, their insurance.
