On Friday, August 21, Mike and Sonja Stith had the opportunity to participate in the 7th annual Meet & Greet event at the Hospice of Southern Illinois. They met several compassionate employees and volunteers of this organization.


Hospice provides a special healthcare option for patients and families who are faced with a terminal illness. The Hospice of Southern Illinois team has been providing care to patients in their own home or a home-like setting regardless of the patient’s age or ability to pay since 1981.


One of the highlights was seeing Magnum the Labradoodle, a Facility Dog that is managed by Carol Mestemacher and has a following of his own. You can learn more about Magnum and the Hospice of Southern Illinois on their website.
