Hello Horizons Community,
It is with much sadness I inform you that Elizabeth Hershoff has been moved to hospice. She did great through six weeks of treatment and another week post-treatment, but took a turn for the worse last weekend. She is now in excellent care and resting comfortably with close friends and family nearby.
I want to take this opportunity to thank you all for your overwhelming generosity and support of Elizabeth and her family. The GoFundMe page raised over $25,000 and, in effect, took a huge burden off of Elizabeth’s shoulders. The money has been or is being used to pay medical bills, hire medical care personnel, and prepay some living expenses. I really can’t convey with words the peace it brought to Elizabeth and Sam to know there were funds available to help cover these costs.
Thank you also for the wonderful meals you all made for Elizabeth and Sam. They enjoyed each and every one of them. At a time when grocery shopping and preparing meals took a back seat, your homemade meals made their days special.
Finally, thank you most of all for your notes, cards, pictures from your kids, the beautiful quilts, and your thoughts and prayers. The most difficult thing for Elizabeth has been how much she misses the kids. Your stories, notes, and pictures have made her feel cherished and loved, and have made the ache from missing Horizons easier to bear.
Please continue to keep Elizabeth and her family in your thoughts.
