The Hospice movement has radically changed the way we help dying people. Until my interview a week ago with the founders of Hospice of Spokane, I didn't realize how new the movement really is in the United States.
Hospice of Spokane was among the first dozen Hospice programs in the country. It accepted its first patients in 1977. Thank you, Hospice pioneers.
Here's my story about it that ran Saturday.
