In the early 1970s, Barb Savage, then a nurse and one of the founders of Hospice of Spokane, listened to a man dying of cancer in the hospital describe his journey of fear and anger. He had withdrawn into himself, refusing to see his wife and children. But he opened up to Savage in conversations she has never forgotten. She is pictured here, on the right, with another founder Marj Humphrey.
