    Prominent evangelist Luis Palau, who has been battling lung cancer for the past few years, has entered hospice care, his son reported Monday night. Andrew Palau posted a statement to the Luis Palau Facebook page explaining that his 86-year-old father's battle with stage 4 lung cancer "took a turn for the worse" at the start of 2021. "He spent two weeks in the hospital in January, dealing with heart and lung issues. Although the doctors thought they had stabilized his condition and [we're] happy to send him home, he returned to the hospital on Friday, February 19th," stated Palau. "After...

    'We are highly concerned with the lack of justice in the court system today,' said the society’s board chair Angelina Ireland.DELTA, British Columbia, June 17, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) — A Canadian judge has blocked a hospice society from initiating a vote by membership on becoming a Christian society, which if adopted would have exempted it from the legal obligation to allow euthanasia — the killing of sick patients by lethal injection — onsite. The Delta Hospice Society, which runs the 10-bed Irene Thomas Hospice, planned to launch the mail-in vote to its 1,500 members at a special meeting this Monday. But...

    Many of you are aware that I'm afflicted with stage four cancer, and that I have chosen the alternative healing route instead of conventional treatments. Well, I've gone further downhill since I informed FR of my condition some months back. I'm now going to require outside assistance to manage the pain. I know nothing about hospice, except that they come into the home to help patients with pain, et cetera. What I don't know is what the potential risks exist when using such a service. Will they report back to Big Brother about what they saw in your gun closet?...

    Dr. Christopher W. Kerr is the Chief Medical Officer at The Center for Hospice and Palliative Care, where he has worked since 1999. His background in research has evolved from bench science towards the human experience of illness as witnessed from the bedside, specifically patients’ dreams and visions at the end of life. Although medically ignored, these near universal experiences often provide comfort and meaning as well as insight into the life led and the death anticipated. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.

    I had a vision last night and over the past 3 days or so. If all that I am going to say were not 100% fully documented by the entire medical and clergical, housekeeping and all other staff, you would be justified in branding me crazy, but it is true, GOD is using this little backwoods Maine country preacher to try and wake up the medical and religious world.

    Former Rep. John Dingell, the longest-serving member of Congress in American history, is receiving hospice care, a person familiar with the situation said Wednesday. The person was not authorized to speak publicly but told The Associated Press about the 92-year-old Dingell’s condition. Dingell’s wife, Rep. Debbie Dingell, tweeted Wednesday morning that she was with him at their home in the Detroit suburb of Dearborn. […] Dingell was first elected in 1955 to fill the House seat vacated by his late father. He was considered a master of legislative deal-making and a staunch advocate for the U.S. auto industry. …

    The family of longtime Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz, said Friday that he has chosen to discontinue medical treatment for brain cancer. "Last summer, Senator John McCain shared with Americans the news our family already knew: he had been diagnosed with an aggressive glioblastoma, and the prognosis was serious. In the year since, John has surpassed expectations for his survival. But the progress of disease and the inexorable advance of age render their verdict. With his usual strength of will, he has now chosen to discontinue medical treatment. Our family is immensely grateful for the support and kindness of all his...

    A former executive of a North Texas hospice on Thursday admitted her role in an alleged $60 million scheme that included overdosing patients to "hasten their deaths," according to a court document. Melanie Murphey, operations director for Novus Health Services in Frisco, pleaded guilty to federal health-care fraud charges. She faces up to ten years in prison. She is expected to testify against 15 others involved in the alleged conspiracy, including Novus’ owner Bradley Harris and his wife Amy. In court documents detailing her crime, Murphey said she was the "go-between" between Bradley Harris and five nurses and five doctors...

  • Where's John McCain?

    12/31/2017 11:09:15 PM PST · by Windflier · 142 replies
    Its totally out of character for McCain to drop off the radar during such a busy news cycle. Last we heard, he went home to recuperate from his latest cancer treatments, just prior to the tax bill vote. That was what - a couple of weeks ago? Knowing McNuts, he ought to be well rested, and back in fighting trim by now, but we haven't heard a peep out of him, or his staff. So, where is the old democrat anyway? Is he down for the count, or is he just resting up to be a pain in the President's...

    ROME - Just days before the 11th anniversary of the death of an Italian man whose battle to be allowed to die stimulated wide debate in the country over euthanasia, the Italian senate on Thursday approved a “living wills” measure strongly backed by right-to-die advocates. For the Catholic Church here, the vote marks a third major political setback in the last two years, coming on the heels of its failures to block adoption of civil unions in 2016, which the Church saw as a step toward gay marriage, and to push through a ius soli law granting immigrant children citizenship...

    Charlie Gard’s mother Connie Yates today left a courtroom in tears after the judge in the case said Charlie would have to die in a hospice if his parents and the London Hospital that has been refusing to treat him properly can’t come to an agreement over where he will be when his life support is removed. Charlie’s parents have been fighting with the hospital over whether or not they can take him home so he can be surrounded by friends and family after he is removed from life support. However the hospital has refused to allow him to go...
