“I have been interested in the hospice movement for many years since reading a book, A Way to Die, written by the former celebrated Guardian journalist Victor Zorza, which described the last few days of his 25-year-old daughter’s life. This interest has been bolstered by being the owner and publisher of International Journal of Palliative Nursing. A recent visit to Julia’s House in Devizes impressed me. Julia’s House is providing a safe haven for children and their families in Wiltshire and Dorset on what has often been a long and traumatic ‘journey’. The end of a child’s life, however painful, does not need to be a depressing experience. Julia’s House demonstrates that the last months, weeks or days can be full of joy and happiness. I am delighted to help spread the word about the great and much needed work that Julia’s House is undertaking.”
