Making the decision to go into hospice isn’t easy for anyone. It is especially difficult when the person with a terminal illness is a child. I was inspired to write this article by Jerika Bolen, a 14-year-old girl who decided to throw herself a prom before going into hospice.
My heart goes out to Jeriak’s mother and every other parent who has ever had to cope with the unimaginable heartbreak of losing a child. If you know anyone who needs a little help dealing with this incredibly difficult topic, please share this link to my article: “Should Children Be Allowed to Make Their Own Decisions About Entering Hospice?”
