Our long time group member recently went to the hospital to handle a spot of cancer in his lungs. Further testing revealed that he had cancer in his spine.
I have since received word that Jack has stopped all medications and surgery and is choosing to take pain killers only.
He is receiving hospice care which is a special kind of care that focuses on the quality of life for people and their caregivers who are experiencing an advanced, life-limiting illness. Hospice care provides compassionate care for people in the last phases of incurable disease so that they may live as fully and comfortably as possible.
His sage advice and his gentle humor enlivened many webinars.
