When Stan Goldberg was diagnosed with cancer, he chose to face his fear by helping others who were already in the process of dying: He became a hospice volunteer and spent six years at the bedsides of the terminally ill. In this book, Stan shares the remarkable stories of people he met who were facing the end of life. Their stories shine a light on the human capacity for beauty, insight, forgiveness, and gratitude, as we see how people like us deal with anxiety and sadness with bravery and love.
