INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION FOR HOSPICE AND PALLIATIVE CARE INC
July 3, 2010

When my husband was diagnosed with lung cancer, we were told by the medical staff that he was incurable and could not offer any treatment and referred him to hospicecare. We were devastated and thought this was denying him care. I found IAHPC through the web, called and talked to a staff member who listened to me, clarified what hospice care is, gave us information about hospices in my area and provided ongoing support. It seem very little, but it meant the world to us.
