A Leap of Faith

Stephen Bergeron was beginning the 2nd semester of his junior year at Champlain College in Vermont when he got the devastating diagnosis – cancer. While it may have derailed his plans, 20-year-old Stephen didn’t let it dim his spirit. He continues to embrace life, living by the philosophy, “Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That’s why it’s called the present.”

When Stephen told his Regional Hospice Social Worker, Ed Schwartz, that he had always wanted to go skydiving, Regional Hospice worked to make that dream a reality. On a clear day in September, Stephen experienced the world from 10,000 feet. From that breathtaking vantage point, he could see as far as Providence and Boston. Full story is available on Regional Hospice and Palliative Care website.
