Wilkes-Barre, PA (February 6, 2020) – In response to an increase in requests for a support group specific to those who have experienced the loss of a child, Hospice of the Sacred Heart will offer a free of charge six-week bereavement series. The series is support-based and education-based.
“The Monica Project” is named in memory of Monica Patel, a beautiful eight-year-old girl who passed away in 2015 under the care of Hospice of the Sacred Heart. “This bereavement series is being offered to parents and grandparents who have experienced the loss of a child of any age and under any circumstance. The need is great and we are not aware of any support group like this in the area,” said Diane Baldi, CEO, Hospice of the Sacred Heart.
“The Monica Project” is available to families of Hospice of the Sacred Heart patients and is also open to the community. The group will meet six consecutive Wednesdays, 6 to 7:30 PM, on April 15, 22, 29, May 6, 13 and 20 at the Hospice of the Sacred Heart Center for Education, 340 Montage Mountain Road in Moosic. To register, please call 570-344-9027.
