Jillian Gillece was nominated by the nurses at Medstar Union Memorial Hospital for taking care of her father, the late James Gillece, who was treated there for advanced colon cancer. Jillian is a social worker who tirelessly gave of her time to take care of her father and support him through his illness. They thought she could use an energy boost and an appreciative gesture that a special CaringOn gift could provide.
CaringOn gave Jillian and her husband two tickets to Centerstage and dinner before the show. Jillian wrote this after receiving the gift from Judy and Susan at CaringOn:
I wanted to let you know how wonderful it was to meet with both of you and really see what wonderful people there are in this world. I can’t say thank you enough for your compassion and strength and overall amazing presence. I hope we get to sit and talk more soon. I would love to give back and help in any way I can.
I wanted to let you know also that I just e-mailed Center stage and hope to go to the Secret Garden next Saturday. It is funny because it is a musical I saw with my dad when I was a kid and I always sing the songs from it, so my husband only knows it through my terrible renditions.
Thank you again for all you do and please absolutely let’s get together again and I would love to volunteer and help in anyway I can.
All my best,
