As part of its Cancer Aid and Research Program, the Ladies Auxiliary to the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) at Post 7288 in Calabash hosts Rebecca Long, community outreach coordinator with the Lower Cape Fear Hospice and Life Care Center organization, at its March 8 meeting. 

Long gave an overview of the organization, including what is a hospice patient, where is the care offered, what hospice care provides and what are Hospice Care Centers. She also talked about the optional veteran-to-veteran component where veterans may choose to volunteer to work with hospice patients that are veterans. 

More information on hospice and life care centers, including the plans to build one in Brunswick County, is available by calling the Wilmington office at 796-7900 or visit www.hospiceandlifecarecenter.org.
