Mary came to us with Stage 4 endometrial cancer. At age 73, Mary lived alone. She knew she was dying and didn’t want to be a burden on anyone – especially her nieces, who were busy with their families and careers. But Mary could no longer live alone.
Her hospice team brought Mary to ABODE, where we provided the 24/7 care she needed. Family members visited regularly – her best friend from MacArthur High School barely left her side. Mary didn’t have to worry about anything – she could just focus on experiencing a peaceful death. Nine days later, Mary died knowing how much she was loved and cared for – and how much she would be missed.
