This site is about solving problems common to terminal illness so that deep communication and true healing can occur. It is also about the knowledge and power that patients, families, and providers of care better have as they try to negotiate a health care system that may not have the patient's or family's best interests as the first priority.

Dedication: To the oncology staff at Parkland Memorial Hospital
