Celebration of BVNA’s Hospice Program

Brockton VNA and Hospice’s June 18th celebration at the Thorny Lea Golf club in Brockton was a huge success and definitely a night to remember!

Our goal was to bring our staff, board members, and supporters together to celebrate how far our Hospice program has come in its growth and celebrate the great team work and supporters that have got us here.

Everyone in attendance had the chance to celebrate the life of Michael (Mike) Bishop who was featured on the cover of the June 17th edition of The Enterprise (Brockton man, 9/11 NY firefighter in hospice care for cancer (enterprisenews.com)) for a life dedicated to service as a fire fighter, including his service at Ground Zero during the 911 attack that changed our nation.

Mike, a current BVNA Hospice patient, was accompanied by his son and played some classic folk rock while his whole family was in attendance to cheer him on.

Mike was preceded by a special guest performance from our Hospice Medical Director, Charlie Wolff, who was also accompanied by his son Dylan. They impressed the staff and everyone in attendance with a tribute to the blues.

It was a fun time that was sorely needed after dealing with the challenges of COVID for so many months and a great way to bring our BVNA family together in celebration.

We would like to thank all that attended and those who donated time, raffles, and good will.
