Hospice Austin was established more than 30 years ago to ease the physical, emotional and spiritual pain of any person in our community facing the final months of a serious illness.  The not-for-profit hospice, never denies services regardless complexity of disease, cost of care, or inability to pay.

This week with the help of Florence and The Machine they did an amazing thing for a teenager in their care.  A 15-year-old patient in their care had long planned to go see Florence and the Machine and she was bitterly disappointed when her health prevented her from attending.  So Florence came to her at Hospice Austin’s Christopher House.

 

From Hospice Austin YouTube:
“Today we were privileged to witness the clear joy of a room full of teenagers singing with Florence Welch and guitarist Rob Ackroyd from Florence and The Machine who came to Hospice Austin’s Christopher House to give a private concert to a teen who missed her concert last night due to her illness. The room was full; full of joy and warmth and love and life and singing. Thank you, Florence!”
