Modern medicine now helps us live much longer with disease. So we face choices we have never had before about dealing with advanced illness. Every day, Hospice of the Chesapeake helps people in late stage illness to lead self-directed lives with comfort and dignity, surrounded by loved ones. For 35 years we’ve grown with the rising need. But today the need from our neighbors has skyrocketed. The Caring for Life Campaign, moving toward a goal of $15 million, is the largest in our history. When you give, you support life well-lived for all of us in the Anne Arundel and Prince George’s County community.

Now that we can live so much longer with serious illnesses such as advanced cancer or heart disease, how can we help patients with advanced illness to live well while also helping them to face grief and loss?

    “We are so grateful. I don’t think if I said ‘thank you’ every day I would be able to express how much this meant to us.”
