What would you do with months left to live?


It’s Hospice Awareness Week this week.  It’s always some kind of day, or week or month, but we all end up in a place where we may need hospice care.

What would you do if you had only months left to live?

It’s question being put to residents of Auckland’s North Shore as part of Hospice Awareness Week, which starts tomorrow.

Hospice North Shore is putting blackboards up across the area inviting locals to share what they would do if they had just months to live, with the hope of engaging residents of all ages to think about what is important to them; inspiring them to do what matters.

“Many of the people for whom we care find that their illness helps them focus on what is really important,” Hospice North Shore chief executive Jan Nichols said.

“We believe the advice to live every moment is relevant to everyone, regardless of their age or state of health.”

The hospice is asking people to consider donating this week, as the organisation relies heavily on fundraising. […]

The charity provides physical, emotional and spiritual support that is possible only because of the generosity of the local community.

What would you do if you only had a few more months left?

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
