Jessica's House: Your votes can help make this happen!

Jessica’s House is named after Jessica Hamather, a young 22 year old woman from Exeter who died Dec. 1, 2015 from a very rare cancer. Jessica attended SHDHS and was a vibrant member of this community, deeply loved, and missed every day. Jessica’s House is a Residential Hospice where people, regardless of age, gender, or finances can come and be with their families and friends at the end of life: A place that feels more like home than a hospital and a place where you can just be a friend or a family member and not a caregiver. The South Huron Hospital Foundation has applied for an AVIVA Grant for $100,000.00 to help make Jessica’s House a reality and they need your help. Part of the grant is the ability to demonstrate community support for the idea. You can help by registering and voting for Jessica’s House before Friday Oct. 28. Go to www.avivacommunityfund.org register and vote with all your 18 votes for Jessica’s House. You need parental consent if you are less than 18 years old, so please go home and get your parents to vote too. Let’s do this together for Jessica.  Do it for all of us!
