Moral Distress in Healthcare: The Value of Dying With Dignity

Abstract




Recently I watched my only sister lose her battle with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, after complications from severe post-graft-versus-host syndrome infection. It was five months from diagnosis to her death at 46 years of age. As she was a brittle diabetic since birth, I became more of a mother to her than a sister over her lifetime, as nearly a decade separated us in age. It was almost like losing another child for me.
