Judy Chamberlin who openly blogged about her experiences as a hospice patient died Saturday January 16th, 2010 at her home in Massachusetts. Her blog started in December 2008 and she shared many great stories about her difficulties with COPD, interactions with her hospice team, and a few interactions with the Boston Globe.
She and her blog were featured here at Pallimed in December 2009. Her story will be featured on NPR's Morning Edition Tuesday morning.
She expressed concern for the lack of a voice for the hospice patient often being supplanted by the family or friends or medical staff. We at Pallimed are thankful for her contributions to the voice of the hospice patient and hope her blog will stand as demonstration of the impact one voice can have.
