“Ed invited me to join the Sojourn Center because of the experience I had with my dad. We discussed palliative and hospice care as his health continued to fail and this raised questions for me about the process, the cost, and how it would help us. I hope that serving on this board will educate me so that I may be able to help someone else.”
