Vida Balciunas spent many years as a psychiatric nurse at St. Paul’s. When her brother Danny died unexpectedly in 2017, she knew immediately that she wanted to honour him with a star in the Lights of Hope. Vida says Danny was a “shining star” in her life, and visiting his star was a tremendous source of comfort to her. Vida wants others to know that a star in the Lights of Hope is a meaningful way to remember a loved one and make a difference in the care and outreach St. Paul’s is known for.
Where there is light there is hope.
