When Stan Goldberg was diagnosed with cancer, he was afraid and deeply saddened by his prognosis, as anyone in his situation would be. Unlike many, however, he chose to face his fear by helping others in the process of dying—he signed up as a hospice volunteer to be at the bedsides of people who are terminally ill. His experiences changed his view of death—and life—forever.

In this book, Stan tells the stories of people he met in hospice. He shows how seemingly ordinary things, such as small acts of kindness, letting go of anger, and keeping things simple can have an extraordinary effect for someone who is dying—and how they offer lasting lessons for the living.

Stan Goldberg, PhD, is a speech pathologist and university professor at San Francisco
State. He is an experienced public speaker and has published articles, poems, and plays addressing end-of-life issues. He is one of six essayists who were asked by NPR to read his “This I Believe” essay at a public gathering in 2007.
