Compassion News Briefs

Fall 2000

Pain Card Well Received

The Pain Card enclosed in the September appeal letter has earned a warm response from Compassion donors.

"It's valuable information in a useful format."

"I didn't know I needed this until I read it. It will cause me to be more proactive in my own pain care."

"This card will help me be a better patient."

For additional copies of the Compassion Pain Card, call us at 503-221-9556.

Book Recommendation

Through the generosity of the Nicolov Foundation, Compassion In Dying Federation has provided courtesy copies of the recently published book Final Victory by Dr. Tom Preston to 5,400 healthcare providers across the country.

The book is an excellent tool for working with the terminally ill and their loved ones. It offers patients everything they need to know about taking charge in the last stages of their lives and setting a course for a peaceful and dignified death.

Compassion is pleased to recommend Final Victory to patients, their families and to healthcare providers.

Avoid The Rush

Compassion In Dying Federation has the perfect answer for those holiday gift givers who are out of ideas or who dread the stress of shopping.

For people who would like to avoid holiday retail madness, we suggest you make a donation to Compassion in the name of a loved one. When you provide the name and address of that person, Compassion will send him/her a thank-you note in your name.

Support choice in end-of-life care for the terminally ill. Share the message of choice with a loved one this holiday season. Your donation will be wisely invested.
