Hospice help proved “invaluable” to Jamestown resident Curt Grudniewski when his mother died 23 years ago.
His mother, Ruth, was diagnosed with esophageal cancer and died at her home in South Dakota. There, hospice workers bathed her, cared for her and helped her with her medications, Grudniewski said. Plus, the service helped his family grieve too.
Fundraisers aren’t walking the plank toward their own death this month; rather, they’ll walk to help those who are dying.

The Polar Pig “Big Splash” is set for12:30 p.m. Jan. 31 and features the one-eyed pirates of the Harley Owners Group teaming up area businesses and organizations at Stutsman Harley Davidson to raise funds for the Jamestown Hospital Hospice Program. Last year, the event raised nearly $8,200 for the program and this year Polar Pig organizer Don Wegner is hoping to get that number even higher this year. It’s a very worthy cause.
