Hospice of Anchorage works with the patient and family along with the patient's physician and the hospice interdisciplinary team - volunteers, nurses, social service coordinators, bereavement coordinators and chaplains - to provide assistance to meet the transition from life through death and to cope with loss and grief. This may be a one-time visit, periodic contact or may grow into an ongoing relationship lasting weeks or months. All services are provided free of cost.

Sarah wrote this poem right after her mom, a hospice patient, got back from surgery. She wrote down the feelings she had in all the crazy aftermath.

 

Cancer

by Sarah Amundsen

 

So swiftly news came when they finally took the time

To hear the complaint and not just a whine

How quickly all changed in everyone's lives

When they finally realized that someone might die.

 

How galling the false words and sympathy appeared

For when the newness wained they all disappeared

So quickly you find whose really beside

As the time flies and treatments arrive.

 

How swiftly it's presence sends cracks through the lines

That bind family, friends, and others beside

As temperaments flare in the face of unfair

For cancer does not discriminate or care.

 

It's easier to bury the feelings it brings

Than face the reality that fuels these things

And it hurts to be made to watch while they fight

When nothing you do will help them this time.

 

How often you wonder long into the night

Why cancer chose YOUR loved one to fight

And why all the little things come into light

When nothing else can be alright.
