102-Year-Old Hospice Patient’s Wish Comes True


Sylvia Knyper Goes Fishing “One Last Time”


October 13, 2015 West Palm Beach, Florida — Proving one is never too old to dream, or in this case, fish, 102-year-old Sylvia Knyper made known her dream to go fishing one last time.  Sylvia’s hospice care team, the hospice Foundations, and several hospice volunteers came together to plan a morning of fishing at Phil Foster Park. Coordinating a challenging set of logistics, including medical support, the group created Sylvia’s field trip of a lifetime, in the process fulfilling the centenarian’s very special wish. The joy was evident on Sylvia’s face as she caught several fish one recent Saturday morning.

“Hospice made my 102nd birthday wish come true,” Sylvia beamed. “I had such a wonderful day with all of the caring people from hospice.”

The outing would not have happened without the efforts of Louise Price, Cassandra Randle, Maura Taggart and Lauryn Barry. The women teamed up to facilitate transportation, other necessities and even the fried fish lunch that followed the morning’s fishing. Greg Leach, President of the Foundations comments, “It is so gratifying to see the lengths that hospice staff and volunteers go to see our patients’ wishes fulfilled. It’s a challenge they live up to in ways large and small, seen and mostly unseen, every day.” He continued, “I’m honestly not sure who was more excited to see this dream come true, Sylvia or the women who made it happen.”
