Life in death: Walk/Run for the Care with Ian Anderson House

For those of you don’t know, I’m a part of a rockin’ team called Finola’s Fans!

My mother, Finola Earls, the head of the the team, passed away from cancer three years ago under the care of a hospice for cancer care called Ian Anderson House.

Ian Anderson House is a pretty special place. It is 100% funded from donations, and at the end of life, patients and their families are able to get the care they need. They need to raise $700,000/year for operating costs. To do this, multiple fundraising events are run yearly, including an event called Walk/Run for the Care.

Finola’s Fans has participated in the Walk/Run for the Care for the past several years, and last year our team through the generous support of our colleagues, friends, and their families raised $3500 dollars for Ian Anderson House, the highest amount raised at Walk for the Care in 2012. We were really excited, but we know that we can do more. Every dollar makes one more person’s life journey that much more comfortable as it comes to its end.
