The Nipissing Serenity Hospice monthly 50/50 lottery provides us with essential funds to ensure that our residents continue to receive the best in end-of-life palliative care.  Although we are approximately 60% funded by the Ontario Government, we rely on fundraising and the support of the public to fulfil our mandate.  Our services are FREE to all residents of the Nipissing and East Parry Sound Districts.

Thank you for your support!
