Living Fully to the End


The Dallas Morning News has been working on a feature story about palliative care for more than a year. My sister, Penni Bourque, who is terminally ill with ovarian cancer is one of the subjects of the story.

The article and still photos will be in this Sunday's edition of the newspaper. WFAA TV in Dallas (Channel 8) will run some of the Dallas Morning News video feature at 10:00 PM this evening.

Here's a link to a clip of the video of my sister -- "Penni Bourque: Living Fully to the End"

Prayers for Penni would be appreciated. Her latest goal is to make it to her birthday in the middle of next month.

Bruce,
I am so sorry to hear about your sister. I know the holiday season will be bittersweet for your family. I have said a prayer for your sister and your family. Peace.

Hi Dr. Prescott -

The whole project is available at www.dallasnews.com/edgeoflife

This includes Penni's video, a lengthy story (part 5) of her journey and many other features and multimedia elements.

Penni is an inspiration. We have been privileged to be with her and her family and to document their ongoing journey.

Best,
