Since my own humble beginning with No One Dies Alone (first as a volunteer companion in the early days to assisting in organizing systems from what began as a grassroots movement to becoming Program Coordinator), I have come to see this great program touch many lives in many ways. From those of us who serve our dying patients, to their families both near and far, to our culture here at Sacred Heart, I have seen the perception of the process of dying move from a quiet place of fear and denial to a sacred place so very important in the process of life. As Program Coordinator, I am in touch with all of our volunteers, as well as many of the nursing staff; there are definitely transformations taking place, too numerable to describe. One thing that strikes me so deeply is the shear amount of organizations, groups, facilities around the world, who have contacted us about starting their own program and many have done so with great success. Professionally, my hope is to continue to see movement away from fear towards a better understanding of the sacredness of this step in the human lifespan. Personally, I am honored to continue serving those during this phase of life and am humbled at its awesomeness.
