ALLEN, Md. - WMDT is once again taking part in Coastal Hospices largest fundraiser Angel Appeal. It's through donations that the organization can provide care to the terminally ill...even those who can't afford it.

Mary Lee Kolb has lived in Allen Maryland her whole life, and has worn many hats, from one of the last federally appointed post masters at the town post office, to owner of the Peninsula Farm Market.

But it was the beautiful music she played as an organist for 79 years that many will never forget.

She put on a special performance for WMDT.

"I haven't been on this thing for a long time," she beams.

8 weeks ago Mary Lee was hospitalized for low blood oxygen, and later diagnosed with congestive heart failure. It was a diagnosis that took some time for her daughter Aggie to cope with. Then three weeks ago, Aggie made the difficult decision to put her mother in the care of Coastal Hospice. A decision that she'll never regret.

"I definitely needed help with my mothers care we have chosen to keep her at home for as long as possible and coastal hospice is helping me do that," her daughter tells us.

Hospice Care can not only improve quality of life, it can help extend it as well. And for Mary Lee, it's allowing her to fulfil her last wish, to be in the comforts of home with her family.

"They talk to me and make me feel like I'm worth a little something," she says.

With a gift to coastal hospice, you can honor a loved one, and we will then hang the angel on our holiday tree. All the proceeds help the organization provide care to anyone here on the shore, regardless of their financial status or insurance. Send your donation to P.O. Box 1733, Salisbury Maryland 21802 or call 410-641-5481.

No gift is too small.
