Making Wishes Come True for a Southcoast Health Hospice Patient

In light of difficult times, love always shines through.

On Wednesday, January 24, our nurses, providers and staff at Charlton Memorial Hospital were able to deliver joy and love to our Southcoast Health VNA hospice patient John and his family. With a wish to see his son, Alex, marry his best friend and fiancé, Nancy, everyone rallied together to make sure he would be part of their special day.

The Southcoast Health Ambassadors and our care team happily helped plan a wedding in the hospital chapel where fresh bouquets of white flowers added the perfect touch to an already joy filled room of family and friends.

Carrying with him the ceremonial wedding bands, John sat front and center as he witnessed Alex and Nancy exchange beautiful vows.

Please join us in extending our best wishes to John, Alex, Nancy and their loved ones. We thank them for allowing us to be a part of their special day.

We would also like to thank John’s care team for this beautiful demonstration of what it means to be More than medicine.
