Along with her mother Helen Allison, Irene Allison stood watch over and offered compassionate care to those at the end of their lives. Helen Allison pioneered so much of what we currently know as hospice and fought to allow those who choose to end their lives, rather than endure unending suffering, as dignified as possible. Irene Allison compiled many of the stories of her mother, and of her own work, into this beautiful book. Listen in as Irene Allison speaks to this most important topic of compassionate care.
