Hospice: Something More
What’s wrong with the following statements:
When a doctor says, “There’s nothing more we can do for you,” it’s time to give up.
If you believe either is “True” you must watch the upcoming television special Hospice: Something More airing on RLTV.
During this one hour, commercial-free special presentation, you’ll meet:
- a 44 year old mom who runs a marathon, attends her son’s high school football practice and drives around town to do errands despite her terminal lung cancer.
- a retired college professor who writes poetry and humor books after his decision to have his automatic defibrillator removed and let nature take its course.
- a 90 year old woman who chose to forego repair of a life-threatening condition because of the risks, including dying during the surgery.
You’ll hear what led these people to their decision and the impact that hospice care has had on each. As you learn about these courageous people and their families, host and former CNN anchor Frank Sesno will be joined in studio by hospice professionals who are expert in their respective disciplines and see patients and families every day.
Written and produced by Hospice Foundation of America in partnership with RLTV and funded by a grant from the John and Wauna Harman Foundation, Hospice: Something More explains why “hospice care” and “living well” are NOT mutually exclusive, and the statement, “There’s nothing more we can do for you,” is just, plain wrong.
