Life becomes easy when we start realizing that most things are illusion. Then we never worry and we can start enjoying life. Wishing all the hospice members a happy stay.

Jayalakshmi Satyanarayana Chennai India
I think what you people are doing here is absolutely amazing and the very thought that such socially responsible citizens still prevail in our country and amidst us gives a warm ray of hope in my heart that there is still some hope for humankind and humanitarian deeds.

kind hearted sir/madam, first i apologise for my grammatical mistakes that i am going to make in this, as i am not good in english. just an hour before i visited JEEVODAYA with my friends, as i concerned that a very good job is being done by JEEVODAYA, and also i thought money and special foods will not make the patients happy as the kind words and the care we give them.and also i pray for the good hearts in JEEVODAYA,ni will b stay in touch

Excellent work. The appearance of the buildings, body language and expressions of the staff via these photographs make this hospice feel like a place of hope and a relief from pain for cancer patients. Palliative care, trauma management etc are relatively unknown words in our country that otherwise prides itself as a contributor of doctors and nurses to the world medical community.

Pratyush Ranjan Mumbai India 
It is an extremely noble cause you are working towards. I would like to be part of this drive and make more and more people aware of the organization.

Hello...I visited your hospice over one year ago with Gilly Burn and have thought about all of you ever since.That trip was my first exposure to India and to your hospice / palliative care. and I was very impressed with what I saw. I know that providing hospice/ palliative care in India has been a challenge but it was not felt at your hospice. The patients seemed to be well cared for, your staff seemed loving and the environment seemed very peaceful. I am working in a large Ottawa hospital that has many technical resources but I still believe in hospice care as a "home". I hope that someday I will visit you again and perhaps help out for a few weeks. Take care God bless

Uma Shankar Arunachalam New Delhi India 
We still remember the days of 1996, where we got our mother Late Mrs. Vasantha Arunachalam got admitted on 15.08.1996 for mouth cancer and by 07.11.1996, she expired in the early hours. First we didn’t have any hints on the humble service extended by the Generous Nuns, after having experience with them, we realized how they handled the patients with high care, love and affection. For those, God has given the schedule for their death, this is the only place, where they are taken care with no expectations, however the patients cry for the pains in their body, where you cannot bear, only pain killers will do, these Holy Sisters with face of Mother Teresa comes to their rescue, 24 hours any time with full patience, manners. They have come from neighbouring state, leaving all their family members, to do this noble service. Our family members and myself are able to do something whatever possible to this Cancer Care association even all are away from Chennai. Our special respect to Dr. Manjula, who we remember still, who prolonged our mother’s life to few months. Uma Shankar, New Delhi

We are in the same field of work, but we do not have a hospice yet. What we are doing is free home care for advanced stage cancer patients for the last 9 years.
I wish Ram and everyone at Jeevodaya the courage to carry on with this humane work.

What a precious gift to the world to have Jeevodaya and all its supporters who are willing to give their time, energy and resources to help ease the suffering of cancer patients.
