Re: can someone tell me about hospice?

I certainly do think she would qualify for hospice. My dad died of cancer also - he was given 6-12 months to live. After 7 months of trying to fight the cancer, he was finally turned over to hospice after the chemo quit working. For 2 weeks hospice came to our house and helped give him baths, gave him pain medicine if needed, answered any questions we had, and just made those last days as comfortable as possible for him. I'm so sorry about what your mom, you, and your family are going through right now. I know how it feels.
