“It is with pride that I, with my daughter Ellen, share the story of our family’s relationship with Central Vermont Home Health & Hospice as Honorary Chairs of the Fall Appeal.
In early 2015, my wife, and Ellen’s mother, Casey Eurich, was diagnosed with Metastatic Melanoma brain cancer, originating from an unknown primary source. It was a difficult diagnosis with a challenging prognosis and low survival rate. At the end of a courageous five months, including major brain surgery and countless trips to UVM Medical Center for treatments, Casey made the choice to remain home to spend the final days of her life surrounded by family and friends.
That choice was made possible because of the services provided by CVHHH, and for that, Ellen, Casey, and I will be eternally grateful. The caregivers seamlessly united with our family and, in a sensitive and caring way, provided the critical information needed to comfort Casey. She was given the gift of being surrounded by family and friends in her last days in our home by some very courageous and
CVHHH has a mission of generosity, kindness, and selflessness that continues to be an essential component that unites our community. Please join me and Ellen in our ongoing commitment to ensure that CVHHH remains vital and thrives.”
