Dame Cicely Saunders was born on June 22, 1918 in the United Kingdom.  She is best known for creating the modern hospice movement that now serves terminally ill patients all over the world.  

She was trained as a nurse, but also became a medical social worker, and also a physician.  Many of the hospice philosophies that are still followed today, were created by Cicely Saunders.  

In this Five for Friday episode, we celebrate the birthday of this amazing woman, and the powerful legacy she created in hospice care.  She created the principle of holistic care for terminally ill patients, believing that pain control encompasses physical, social, psychological, and spiritual needs.
