Meet LeRoy: Making Music in Hospice Care

Meet LeRoyEvery year, more than 1.5 million people receive hospice care. Nebraska resident LeRoy was one of them.

After being diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma on his face, LeRoy had surgery to remove the cancer and skin grafts to cover the area. As the cancer became more aggressive, LeRoy encountered some difficult decisions. When he discussed hospice care with the hospital staff and his family, LeRoy's response was, "Where do I sign?"

Stories of Caring
In 1993, my parents and I endured a horror that has been visited upon millions of families across the globe we watched helplessly as my brother Ron died of AIDS. He was only 32. It is hard to believe that over a decade passed, because all I have to do is close my eyes, and there he is my friendly, outgoing brother who grew up to charm every person who crossed his path, travel all over the world, and embrace the joys of life to the fullest. I wish you could have known my brother.
