Sue Collins, R. N.
Sue Collins, who has been a nurse for 38 years and a hospice nurse for 28 years, has the extensive experience of the professional caregiver. She has seen virtually everything at the end of life. As much as anything this book arises out of the OMG!I-can’t-believe-they-said-that/did-that moments as well as the anger, frustration, grace and poignancy she has witnessed during the last days of patients for whom she has cared.
Nancy Taylor Robson
Nancy Taylor Robson, author of three other books, whose work has appeared in regional, national and international publications, lost her father to bone cancer, which took approximately three years from diagnosis to departure, and her mother-in-law to a long decline and series of strokes. She has sat by deathbeds and seen more than one friend through the last months, weeks, days and hours of life here and knows that as painful a journey as this is, there can be gifts and blessings along the way. She knows, (at least intellectually), that none of us is getting out of here alive.
