Electing for Hospice Support

Deciding to have hospice support is often a very difficult decision for people. Many feel as though they are ‘giving up’ or that they should continue to take treatments. How do you make this decision?

This week on Passionate World Talk Radio we chatted Chris Sperry who talks with us about his decision to elect hospice support after 10 years of treatment for Stage IV colon cancer that metastasis to his liver and lungs. Deciding to stop curative treatment is never an easy decision.

Chris talks very eloquently about the factors that influenced this decision and what he has learned from living with serious illness for the past 10 years.
