Kid's Grief Day Camp is this Saturday
The death of a parent, sibling or friend can be an isolating experience for a child. They may feel different and removed from their peers, thinking they are the only one to feel emptiness and loss. 
However, as this image shows, there are other kids who share and understand their pain. A Kid's Day Camp is being offered this Saturday, July 16 from 9:00 to 3:00 p.m. at our Full Circle Grief & Loss Center. Informational videos and registration forms are available at this linkor call Full Circle bereavement counselor Barbara Moss at 912.303.9442.

When to "give up"
A thought-provoking Associated Press article recently published in our Savannah Morning News asks us to ponder choosing treatment or comfort for late-stage cancer. We are proud to be able to offer our community the services of The Steward Center for Palliative Care and now offer home-based visits on a limited basis.
Palliative Care, and later, hospice care, have been clinically shown to increase life-expectancy. As the article says, "You are still fighting for you life;" "You're fighting to have good days."

Christmas in July
Pictured is a former patient who celebrated Christmas in July (and all the other holidays in July!) as she died in Hospice House four summers ago. We are so pleased to welcome her son-in-law and his mom as new volunteers this month.

Gifts made "in memory of" or "in honor of" a loved one are a meaningful way to remember or honor someone special and to help us continue making such happy memories for families. Click here to read the list of generous donors from last month.
Choosing thoughtfully; Choosing the best
