The Rookie & The Vet is a video series designed to share what the Healing Cycle foundation does, how our Foundation supports Ontario hospices, and bring light to the importance of hospice work for patients and families. The series is hosted by two of our Foundation’s Board members.

Mallory McGrath, a.k.a. The Rookie, is the newly-voted in Board member at The Healing Cycle Foundation. Mallory is the Founder and CEO of Viive Planning, a service designed to help clients and their families create harmonious and meaningful legacy plans.


Ron Kassies, a.k.a. The Vet (for Veteran), is the Chair and longest-standing Board member at The Healing Cycle Foundation. Ron is a Financial Planning Advisor at Investment Planning Counsel and works with clients to create sound investment strategies that support their life goals.


Together, Ron and Mallory will keep you updated with our Foundation’s activities, as well as bring in guests to speak about hospice-related topics that help better understand the wonderful work of hospice workers.
