Special to the Standard
In celebration of National Hospice Month, Covenant Hospice has published a new book titled Faces of Life.
The 96-page hard back book contains inspirational stories from Covenant Hospice patients and their loved ones. Each story is accompanied by a beautiful black and white photograph taken by local professional photographers who donated their time and talent to the project.
Covenant Hospice will be holding an open house and Faces of Life photo exhibit and book release from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday, Nov. 20, at the Covenant Hospice Brewton office located at 1023 Douglas Ave., Suite 204.
This local event is part of a broader national campaign launched by the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization reminding people that hospice is not about how you die but how you live. There will be a range of activities across the country throughout November focusing on living as fully as possible up until the end of life.
The Faces of Life book, with a forward written by healthcare professional, author and speaker Quint Studer, can be purchased at any Covenant Hospice branch office or online at www.covenanthospice.org and is only $29.95. Proceeds from the book will benefit unfunded and under-funded special programs and indigent patient care. For more information about the exhibit or Faces of Life, contact Ronda Williams at 251-867-6993.
