Launch of video on palliative care

Josephine Graham was diagnosed with cancer for the second time two years ago. She is now a regular day patient at Our Lady’s Hospice in Harold’s Cross. “I’m still on my journey,” she declared cheerfully yesterday at the Royal Hospital in Kilmainham, at the launch of an information video about palliative care.
