MEET THE PCSBV TEAM!
THERESA RADWELL CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER
I am passionate about palliative care and the positive impact it can have for those facing a diagnosis of a life-changing illness. Strong relationships and meaningful collaborations are critical. By working together with our partners we can build a compassionate community here in the Bow Valley, one that is supportive of our friends and families on the palliative care journey and during times of loss and grief. I know first hand the difference that palliative care can make for individuals and those around them, from those initial discussions at the time of diagnosis throughout the palliative journey to end of life. My personal experience is my inspiration. It is what drives me as CEO at the Palliative Care Society of the Bow Valley and will guide me to achieve our vision and goals, bringing change in our community.
KRISTIN FRY FUND DEVELOPMENT
Philanthropy is about transforming communities and connecting people to their passions.
The Palliative Care Society of the Bow Valley inspires me to wake up in the morning with a purpose. I feel privileged to connect donors to their vision of a caring compassionate community. During the “end-of-life” process, my father, a friend and a neighbour did not have the opportunity to experience a worthy end to their magnificent life journey. The path can look so much better.
BILL HARDER PROGRAM MANAGER
I have learned much about living from my work with those who are dying and from those who feel sorrow. It is in this soil that I have deepened my own roots and grown as a person. In discovering the transformative power of grief, I have come to understand loss as a quintessential experience that every human being will come to know. In hospice end-of-life care, we journey with the dying and grieving as co-mentors, explorers of beginnings and endings. Our work is about dying well and bearing witness to the sorrow of those who grieve.
