A Donor’s Perspective – Jerry Parins

“I’ll tell you, when it comes up in conversations with me, Unity is on top of the ladder. Having hospice involved helps take a big load off your shoulders. People caring about people…Unity is the leader in that.”

“I retired from the Green Bay Police Department and began working for the Green Bay Packers full-time in ’92. My life was great. Then, one evening when I was almost 64 years old, my whole world crashed. I found I had a cancerous tumor in my rectal area. My good friends Pat Dougherty and Vandervest Harley-Davidson wanted to do something for me and my cancer. This is how “Cruise for Cancer” started. Our first ride was in 2004 while I was still having chemotherapy. As the cruise started getting bigger and raising more revenue, Unity was always right there and number one of our organizations to support. I’ll tell you, when it comes up in conversations with me, Unity is on top of the ladder. Having hospice involved helps take a big load off your shoulders. People caring about people…Unity is the leader in that.”

—Jerry Parins, Former Green Bay Packers Corporate Security Director
