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.
