Sandy's Sassy Squad
Sandy Ambrosoli was one sassy “sista”. We are proud to walk in her honor. The world got a bit dimmer in January when her long and brave journey with ovarian cancer ended. We will be bringing back her light and humor during this walk; and most importantly, with the funds generated, continue her memory thru the work of her fellow Hospice colleagues. She was a role model for compassionate, patient-centered care and was a fierce advocate for the needs of her patients. She is one of only a handful of nurses who spent their entire nursing career working with dying patients while maintaining her humanity and sense of humor throughout. She was always grateful for the opportunity that Hospice Buffalo gave her when she was chosen as a new RN to travel to St Christopher’s Hospice in England and met with Dame Cicely Saunders. We are hoping to generate enough money from this year’s team to begin funding an annual gift for a Hospice Buffalo nurse to pursue further training in Sandy’s honor.
Please join our team either as a walker or as a "virtual walker". Sandy will be walking with us in spirit.
