23rd Butterfly Luncheon

April 17 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Houston Hospice 23rd Butterfly Luncheon

Hadley Vlahos, RNHadley Vlahos, RN, hospice nurse and New York Times bestselling author, will be the keynote speaker for Houston Hospice’s 23rd Butterfly Luncheon. Hadley is a hospice nurse and palliative care advocate, as well as a New York Times bestselling author and TikTok star!

Hadley is at the forefront of reshaping perspectives on end-of-life care and her book, “The In-Between: Unforgettable Encounters During Life’s Final Moments,” is a personal memoir offering profound insights into the transformative power of compassion, promising an enriching and uplifting experience for all attendees.

“Nurse Hadley” also shares hospice stories with 1.8 million TikTok followers.

This year’s event holds special significance because it coincides with National Volunteer Week. Volunteers are an integral part of the care Houston Hospice provides to patients and families, often bringing a calm, selfless presence with their visits. We will celebrate and honor our dedicated volunteers at this year’s luncheon while raising vital funds for Houston Hospice and our pediatric hospice program.

For more information on the 23rd Butterfly Luncheon, please contact Aida Matic at 713-677-7123.
