Share & Care Portugal was born from a sad event in a womans life when her hubby, Michael died suddenly. The day was beautiful, the sun shining, we went for drive in the mountains, had a lovely picnic and paddled in the river. On the way back we collected pine cones from the forest, we sang and listen to music in the car driving home.
As I watered the garden Michael called me in, had a pain in his arm. I called an ambulance , he collapsed as they arrived, he was 55, healthy as far as we knew. Loving his life, looked so healthy. He died within half an hour as they we trying to work on him to save his life in our home. My life fell apart, I felt so alone, had so much to arrange, trying to cope with the shock and then the onset of grief ... But I am still here to tell the story, and I dedicated Share & Care Portugal to Michael.
Debs went through a dreadful, lonely time coming to terms with it all and dealing with all the red tape. After a year, she decided to set up this organisation to help others in similar circumstances.
