Hospice is About a Better Life, Not Just the End of Life.

The Virginia Hospice Awareness Campaign is made possible thanks to a grant from Aetna. The goal is to make Virginians aware of the difference nonprofit hospice providers can make in caring for patients and families through our #JointMission to care for all regardless of race, citizenship status or ability to pay.
