SOUTHAMPTON, Mass. (PRWEB) March 17, 2013
In “The Miracle of Hospice: A Personal Journey of a Hospice Nurse” (published by Balboa Press), author Cathy Truehart’s new medical memoir, readers are taken into the world of a hospice nurse and shown the truth of the practice.
“This book is about who I am and what I know about hospice,” explains Truehart. “The theme of the book is how hospice is not the enemy.” The book takes readers through the author’s life as a hospice nurse. Truehart hopes to educate the reader about the value of considering hospice and clarifying what hospice is and what it is not. She hopes to dispel some of the stigma that the word elicits.
A review by Kay Degenhardt about the book:
“Truehart gives us a real inside peak at her work and the devotion and skills of those who work alongside her. But most important, she takes the ‘scary’ out of hospice. She makes it clear that choosing hospice creates the best possible world for the dying and the people who love them…that terminal illness does not necessitate living every day as though it is your last. Rather… hospice can create a world of possibilities for each and every day that is left to us—just like in real life.”
“Hospice is an invaluable service for people with a life threatening illness and who no longer are seeking curative treatment,” says Truehart. “The underlining thread that is woven throughout the book is that hospice is about quality of life and it is something to be revered rather than feared.”
