Learn about a charitable foundation that helps hospice patients with the simple needs of life to bring them dignity and comfort.
My guest Marsha Filion is the Executive Director of Hospice Help Foundation, a 501(c)3 charitable organization that provides financial assistance to hospice patients in need. After training as a hospice volunteer she joined the foundation to help bring dignity and comfort to people at the end of life.
