In Memory

Andrei Gheraiescu

19 Oct 1993 - 19 Apr 2017

After 13 years of care with Hospices of Hope, Andrei lost his battle with muscular dystrophy at the age of 23. Those of you who knew Andrei will remember his smile and appreciation for life. He made the most of every day and would get involved with everything even though his illness prevented him from doing things. We would like to raise money in Andrei's memory so other children can receive the much needed care he did and enjoy life to the full.

This is a letter Andrei wrote last year:

"My name is Andrei and I am 22 years old. I've been a hospice patient since the age of 10. Hospice has drastically changed my life, it has always been a huge support and has helped me overcome the most difficult moments in my life.

Hospice is where I have met many people with a big heart who look after all of us patients with great love and care. Hospice has become my second home, here I have made many friends who I socialise with. We are like a big family.

Thanks to Hospice, I got to see the sea for the first time and I was able to go on holiday and many other trips. I have timeless memories and moments spent with my friends and people with a genuinely good soul. For this, I am very thankful.

I love Hospice because they offer people hope and strength whilst they are going through difficult times. I'd like to thank Hospice and all of the people for their crucial help and donations to help patients like me. I hope more people will join in supporting this wonderful charity. Thank you very much!

Love Andrei"
