Stephen and son Curtis share their story

18 February 2022

“Tracey’s generosity inspires our passion to help others every day, even while she was ill, she always thought of others.”

Stephen and his son Curtis have kindly shared with us why they support our charity in loving memory of his wife and Curtis and Cassandra’s mum, Tracey.

Speaking about his wife’s time at the hospice, Stephen says: “The atmosphere was welcoming and friendly. We think the hospice made such an impact on Tracey’s care with empathy and calmness.

“She was hesitant coming into the hospice at first, but as soon as she got here, she wasn’t scared at all.”

Stephen recalls clinical staff treating both him and his wife with dignity and respect, while doing everything in their power to make the couple feel at ease and relaxed in the hospice.

“We saw what a difference hospice care made to my wife and all the family. We now make and donate pamper packs with the help of Tracey’s Dream supporters and Anthony at Tribute Night Promotions for patients coming into the hospice.”

“Although we never meet the patients, we like to give something back and make a difference to their experience like the hospice made to us at such a difficult time.”

Stephen attributes his passion of helping others to his late wife’s generosity, he adds: “I remember she saved £60 to buy a coat once, and when she had saved enough to buy it, she donated the whole £60 to a children’s charity.

“I was a lucky man to be married to Tracey for 29 happy years.”

Stephen and Curtis have kindly donated beautifully packaged sweets for all patients and staff this Valentine’s Day, in loving memory of Tracey.

We thank them both so much for this gesture and their ongoing support.
