I have been a palliative care volunteer since 1982.

We have a great organization because of all the dedicated people who started palliative care at Strait-Richmond.

It was wonderful to have Dr. Martel join us to help people die at home or their place of choice.

Recently, I spoke to someone who shared her story about her husband’s last day. He had wished to die at home. His wife felt it was made possible by Dr. Martel.

Many families have used our palliative care. So please start speaking out. We need Dr. Martel back. What do you think?
