Losing someone you love is always difficult --
A very special way to pay tribute to a family member, friend, or co-worker is through a memorial donation to MDSC.
A tribute fund, arranged through the funeral director, will enable others to support your wish to help the MDSC. When we receive your memorial donation:
- A condolence card will be sent to the family;
- All donors will receive a letter of thanks along with a tax-receipt acknoledging their support; and
- You will receive a list of donors (amounts remain confidential) that will allow you to send you own thank you note, in addition to our recognition.
Donations can be made anonymously - or we can speak with you about how we could make an appropriate public tribute to the deceased.
