The Colchester East Hants Hospice Society is pleased to announce that Ron James will be performing at You’ll Die Laughing 2015 in support of CEH Hospice programming. The event will take place on Friday, May 8th at 8:00pm at the Cobequid Education Centre (CEC), 34 Lorne Street, in Truro, NS. The night will include a pre-event reception beginning at 7:00pm, with special guests Mitchell Johnson of Big Dog 100.9 and Rod Deviller of Cat Country 99.5.

Ron James is Canada’s award-winning, premier selling comedian, whose unique blend of poetically charged, kinetically driven, 100-minute non-stop stand-up comedy performances have been rewarded with standing ovations at sold out theatres from coast to coast.

Ron was voted Canadian Comedian of the Year at the inaugural Canadian Comedy Awards in 2000 and also garnered a Gemini Award as part of the writing team for This Hour Has 22 Minutes. He’s also enjoyed popular and coast-to-coast critical acclaim for five 60-minute specials for CBC TV: The Road Between My Ears, filmed in Toronto; Quest For The West, filmed in Calgary; West Coast Wild, filmed in Victoria, Back Home, filmed in Halifax and Manitoba Bound, filmed in Winnipeg. Ron has also enjoyed great success with the hit CBC comedy, The Ron James Show.

We asked Colchester East Hants Hospice Society Volunteer, Sandra Murphy: Why is Hospice important to you?

"I was asked by a friend about seven years ago to take the Hospice Society course with her. At that time, I did not know a lot about Hospice. I am so grateful that I did so as I love volunteering in the Palliative Care Unit at the hospital. It is so heartwarming to be with clients "at the end". I like to hold their hand and tell them that they are not alone and that I am there with them. It is a real honour and I feel extremely blessed to be a part of the Hospice Society."

Did you know... We have volunteers that share their time and talents to make sure that the kitchen in the Palliative Care Unit smells amazing? Hospice provides baking supplies and our volunteers bring their favourite recipes for baked goods that they prepare right in the kitchen and share with patients and their families.

If you would like to make a donation of baking supplies we are always in need of flour, chocolate chips and margarine or gift cards that our volunteers can purchase supplies, as they are needed. We are always grateful for the generous support of our community!

We asked Colchester East Hants Hospice Society Volunteer, Steve Taylor: Why is Hospice important to you?

"I was wanting to do more volunteering and I happened to listen to a gentleman from Halifax that spoke about Hospice and I was inspired by his talk. I was quite taken by his insight and I decided to stop by the Hospice office in Truro, completed my application, went through the interview process, took the training course and have been a volunteer for the past six years.

I really enjoy being a volunteer and look forward to my weekly visits at the Palliative Care Unit. It is a pleasure to be associated with all the other dedicated Hospice volunteers, staff, Board of Directors, doctors, nurses, LPN's, social workers and cleaning staff at the hospital.

I always have a more positive attitude after my visits."
