Stories about Hospice Casa Sperantei
Tomorrow marks World Hospice and Palliative Care Day. With very few exceptions, mainstream media has shown no interest in reporting on the rights and realities of individuals who live with life-threatening illnesses. Rather than relying on traditional media to pick up the cause, hospices and individuals around the world are encouraged to submit their own stories using digital media.
Patients at Hospice Casa Sperantei in Romania are having their stories told, many for the first time, and preserved on the project's new blog.
Hospice Casa Sperantei will be training its nurses, doctors, and staff in the upcoming months to use audio recording and photography equipment to collect the stories of their patients, who are all suffering from life-limiting illnesses such as cancer.
