NHPCO NewsLine Fall 2016 - 12

continued from previous page Sharon Pearce. "But by screening Being Mortal and highlighting personal stories like Rory Feek's, NHPCO was able to raise awareness about and support for high-quality end-of-life care." Rory Feek Shares His Heart for Hospice At the invitation of NHPCO, singer, author, and filmmaker Rory Feek joined a distinguished panel on Capitol Hill to participate in a Congressional briefing about hospice and end-of-life issues. Here is an excerpt from a post Rory wrote on his popular blog, "This Life I Live," about his experience testifying in Washington. The event was featured in the "Reliable Source" section of The Washington Post. I was blessed with th e opportunity to be pa rt of two very specia events that were for l causes that are near -and-dear to my hear and Joey's. The first t, one took place in Was hington, DC. I had been invited to DC by the National Ho spice and Palliative Care Organization to take part in a Congre ssional briefing on hospice and end-of-li fe issues. I am not a political person in an way, but I am passio y nate, like my wife was , about people having the right to choose a better way to spend th eir final days, weeks and months. So early last week, our manag er Aaron and I flew to our nation's capita l to be part of a roun dtable discussion on Capitol Hill in front of some members of the House, the Senate and many other nice folks that were there. One of the speakers, a wonderful doctor an d author named Atul Gawande, show ed his powerful PBS do cumentary "Being Mortal" and he and others spoke about im portant legislation for hospice initiatives . Then the moderator showed the trailer for Joey's documenta ry and asked me to sh are some of our story and what a diffe rence hospice made in our lives during that difficult time. In all, the event succeeded in re-igniting the dialogue on Capitol Hill about end of life, and brought greater attention to and support for our important legislative initiatives. This screening, hosted by NHPCO, was made possible by a grant from The John and Wauna Harman Foundation in partnership with the Hospice Foundation of America who is coordinating a national outreach campaign, the Being Mortal Project with screenings and outreach events taking place throughout the country. I've been amazed to learn how many peop le are scared of the word 'hospice', and en d up spending most of their remaining days fighting, struggl ing to find a cure that never comes...and miss precious time w ith their family and friends that they could be spending w hile they're still here and healthy enough to enjoy it. I am so pr oud and in awe of Jo ey and the wonderful gift of tim e and memories that she gave all of us during the final mon ths of her life. Hospice and their doctors and nurses are part of how that happened for us.
