Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

One's body goes through a great deal of change with a terminal illness. Pain and other disease symptoms can impair quality of life. Relationships change in addition, and those who are dying as well as those who love them often need help coping. Spirituality or faith may be affected giving cause to wonder if one's life has made a difference. All these changes can be hard to discuss because many in our culture are uncomfortable with their own mortality.
